I've encountered the same pb on my HPdeskjet.
I'm just saving the graph under .EMF and modify it under Metafile Companion
( ~30$) (removing background items).. And then
Insert the EMF into my Word file and it's working

Objet : st: RE: black graph


I fight this same problem with my HP LJ-6P (a not terribly old printer).  In
my case, graph region background colors in a color
graph or shading in a B&W graph turn black and sometimes the graphing
symbols turn white (other times they just disappear in the
blackness) when I print after pasting into MS/Word.  Such graphs print fine
if printed to the 6P directly from Stata; they'll also
print fine to my networked HP LJ-4550 Color Printer from Word, even in black
and white.  I can fiddle with some of the printer
options in the 6P driver to get a readable graph but this wipes out all
shading so I get a very' plain graph, a la graph7 graphics.

Clearly there is an incompatibility with how the graph instructions get
interpreted... but who we blame is not so clear!

Hi - can someone please tell me how to get a Stata 8 graph to come out in
black and white when I paste it into a MS Word document
and  print it. When I put options into the graph command in Stata, such as
.....,graphregion(fcolor(white)) mcolor(black)
it comes out looking fine in both Stata and the Word document on the
monitor. Then when I print it the colors come out reversed.
