Subject: st: Axis break

Hi everyone,

I have a scatterplot with a couple of outliers.  The effect of these outliers is to compress the vast majority of observations into the bottom third of the graph space making it hard to see what is going on with the observations.  Rather than dropping the outliers and ignoring them altogether I would like to put a line break through the axis.  This would allow the majority of the observations to fill most of the graph space but still highlight to the reader the fact that the outliers exist.

I had a look on the Statalist archives but only found a related article during Stata 8.  At that time it appeared that axis breaks were not a feature of Stata.  Does anyone know if they now are?  If so what code should I use?  If not does anyone have any suggestions.

I have also looked through "A visual guide to Stata graphics" to no avail.
