Hello all

Two minor queries re -translate-. As I understand it, SJ is made using SJ LaTeX with figures made mostly from Encapsulated PostScript (.eps) files. The size of these figures, plus the fact that SJ like to have the .gph files, suggests that SJ control the size of these figures at the -translate- level, using the -mag-, -xmag-, -ymag-, -xsize- and/or -ysize- options. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) I would guess that these are set in the region of -mag 67-.

My queries are:

1. Does SJ (and/or the manuals) have an official house style regarding magnification of .eps figures? (I would like to be able to preview my SJ insert drafts with the right magnification.)

2. More generally, are the current -translate- options stored anywhere accessible to ordinary Stata-level programmers? I ask because I would like to write programs that change them temporarily, and then restore the pre-existing options.

Best wishes (and thanks in advance)
