Subject   st: New version of -scheme_rbn1mono- on SSC
Date   Fri, 21 Dec 2012 18:48:19 +0000

Thanks as always to the untiring services of Kit Baum, a new version of the -scheme_rbn1mono- package is now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this, or -adoupdate- if you already have an old version of -scheme_rbn1mono-.

The -scheme_rbn1mono- package is described as below on my website. The new version adds 2 new graphics schemes -rbn3mono- and -rbn4mono-, which are alternative versions of the existing schemes -rbn1mono- and -rbn2mono-, respectively, with all default line widths set to 0.25 percent of the minor dimension, instead of to 0.325 percent of the minor dimension. The new schemes are therefore optimized for the preferences of most medical periodicals, which are increasingly viewed on the Web with a user-specified level of magnification. The existing schemes were optimized either for photocopying or for overhead projections, where it is important to have visibility for members of the audience with poor eyesight at the back of the hall.

Best wishes (and happy holidays for those who are having them)

      scheme_rbn1mono: Minimal monochrome graphics schemes

      scheme_rbn1mono contains Roger Newson's default graphics schemes.
      The scheme rbn1mono specifies a minimal and photocopier-friendly
      black-and-white look, with gray background lines and minimal gray
      shading.  It is slightly more minimal and photocopier-friendly than
      s1mono (which is its mother scheme), and slightly less minimal and
      photocopier-friendly than Svend Juul's lean schemes (which can be
      downloaded in their latest form using the findit command).
      The package scheme_rbn1mono now includes a second scheme rbn2mono,
      which is an alternative version of rbn1mono which does not alter
      text sizes, marker sizes and line widths when by graphs and/or
      graph combine and/or graph matrix are used. It also includes the
      schemes rbn3mono and rbn4mono, which are alternative versions of
      rbn1mono and rbn2mono, respectively, with thinner default line
