Thank you Nick and Maarten For solution 1 and 2 will the plotted confidence intervals be correct? I want to try the solution nr 3. Or maybe just edit the graph afterwards I will read the Stata Tip I first used logscale and plotted the 4 lines in the same graph, but the results was much better when I used 4 separate graphs and not using logscale.
