Thank you, Martin. Your sequence of commands is a substitute for the
linegap() option.
. sysuse auto
. graph dot mpg turn, over(rep78) linegap(25)
I am interested in the gap() suboption for use with over(). The help
file describes this option as follows:
"gap(#) and gap(*#) specify the gap between the lines in this over()
group. gap(#) is specified in percentage-of-bar-width units. Just
remember that gap(50) is a considerable, but not excessive width.
gap(*#) allows modifying the default gap. gap(*1.2) would increase
the gap by 20%, and gap(*.8) would decrease the gap by 20%."
In the example from my initial post, the gap() option has no effect on
the appearance of the graph.
. sysuse auto
. graph dot mpg turn, over(rep78) name(dot1)
. graph dot mpg turn, over(rep78, gap(*.5)) name(dot2)
