Eric G. Wruck (ewruck@econalytics.com) asked about using user-written
schemes:

and Nick Cox (n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk) replied

The names of the schemes in the drop-down menu are currently hard-coded.
Additional schemes will not appear in the drop-down menu until we add
logic to Stata to be able to find them and append them to that menu.

In the meantime, as Nick said, you can set the scheme with
-set scheme-.  If you wish to always use the new scheme, you can
-set scheme ..., permanently-.  You can also use the -scheme()- option
on any individual graph command:

   . scatter mpg weight, scheme(lean1)
