Svend,

Thank you for the clarification.  

Looking back at the -help twoway_options- this is made clear in the 
remarks.

"...the by() option applies to the entire graph and in theory you 
should type

        . twoway lfitci  mpg weight, stdf  ||
                 scatter mpg weight, ms(O) ||, by(foreign, total row
(1))

    or

        . twoway (lfitci  mpg weight, stdf)
                 (scatter mpg weight, ms(O)), by(foreign, total row(1))

to demonstrate your understanding of that fact."


Thanks again,
Scott
