Michael Blasnik <[email protected]> reports that -graph combine- is
not respecting the scales set on the graphs being combined,

On first attempt, I cannot reproduce this, though admittedly there are several
ways to "forced the yscale to go through 0".  Michael, I suggest you send as
much detail about this as you can to Stata technical services
<[email protected]>, including datasets and do-files if possible, and
.gph files and your combine command if not.
