Maybe the problem you described bove is similar to mine. I get a lot of white space on the left of the plot Have a look: clear all cd d:\ input str8 (Austria Belgium ) "2/11/08" "07/12/08" "30/11/08" "04/01/09" "28/12/08" "01/02/09" "25/01/09" "01/03/09" "22/02/09" "29/03/09" "22/03/09" "26/04/09" "19/04/09" "24/05/09" "17/05/09" "21/06/09" "14/06/09" "19/07/09" "12/07/09" "16/08/09" "09/08/09" "13/09/09" "06/09/09" "11/10/09" "04/10/09" "08/11/09" "01/11/09" "06/12/09" "29/11/09" "03/01/10" "27/12/09" "31/01/10" "31/01/10" "28/02/10" "28/02/10" "28/03/10" "28/03/10" "25/04/10" "25/04/10" "23/05/10" "23/05/10" "20/06/10" "20/06/10" "18/07/10" "18/07/10" "15/08/10" "15/08/10" "12/09/10" "12/09/10" "10/10/10" "10/10/10" "07/11/10" "07/11/10" "05/12/10" "05/12/10" "02/01/11" "01/01/11" "30/01/11" "30/01/11" "27/02/11" "27/02/11" "27/03/11" "27/03/11" "24/04/11" "24/04/11" "22/05/11" "22/05/11" "19/06/11" "19/06/11" "17/07/11" "17/07/11" "14/08/11" "14/08/11" "11/09/11" "11/09/11" "09/10/11" "09/10/11" "06/11/11" end gen dAustria = date(Austria, "DM20Y") gen dBelgium = date(Belgium, "DM20Y") gen dA2 = dAustria - dAustria[_n-1] gen dB2 = dBelgium - dBelgium[_n-1] gen Aus= 10 gen Bel = 9 gen t10 = (dAustria + dAustria[_n-1]) / 2 gen t9 = (dBelgium + dBelgium[_n-1]) / 2 scatter Aus dAustria, xsize(20) ysize(8)|| scatter Bel dBelgium || // scatter Aus t10, ms(none) mla(dA2) mlabpos(910) || /// scatter Bel t9 , ms(none) mla(dB2) mlabpos(910) yla(9 "Belgium" 10 "Austria" , ang(h)) xla(, format(%td)) legend(off) On 6/8/12, Austin Nichols <austinnichols@gmail.com> wrote: > Nick-- > Hard to know what the poster means by excessive white space, but > perhaps the desideratum is an approximate 45 degree angle in one of > the series, which can be achieved by many means e.g. by changing the > aspect ratio or the range on the x axis. > > clear > input high low quarter7 > .2958866 .236993 -6 > .2957524 .230218 -5 > .2953402 .2316445 -4 > .3119317 .2338386 -3 > .3281921 .2446502 -2 > .3232706 .2491048 -1 > .3490512 .2641283 0 > end > scatter high low quarter7 > scatter high low quarter7, c(l l) xsize(2) ysize(5) name(aspect) > scatter high low quarter7, c(l l) xla(-15/10) name(xaxis) > > > On Thu, Jun 7, 2012 at 7:12 AM, Nick Cox <n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk> wrote: >> From this I can do this >> >> clear >> input high low quarter7 >> .2958866 .236993 -6 >> .2957524 .230218 -5 >> .2953402 .2316445 -4 >> .3119317 .2338386 -3 >> .3281921 .2446502 -2 >> .3232706 .2491048 -1 >> .3490512 .2641283 0 >> scatter high low quarter7 >> >> and I can't see any problem with that kind of graph.
