Yes, it is possible to set the size of text in Stata graphs. However,
the syntax to do this can be a bit complicated, and depends on what text
you are resizing. However, the main documentation can be found in Stata
by typing

help textsizestyle

If you are resizing titles , then you use the size() suboption of the
title() option. If you are resizing labels, you use the labsize()
suboption of the label() option. And if you are resizing marker labels,
then you use the mlabsize() option of the twoway command. And there are
other options for resizing different text components of graphs. However,
all sizing options work in a similar way, as documented under

help textsizestyle

or under

help relativesize

I hope this helps.

Best wishes

Dear Listers,

Is it possible to have larger font size and/or bold fonts i twoway 
graphs? I want to show the graph in Power Point so everyone can see it!
