Well, it does not seem to prevent Stata from drawing the next graph. I end up with the -scatter- of weight against length, without any chance to intervene:

sysuse auto, clear

foreach var of varlist mpg price weight{
		sc `var' length

This works fine for me:

. forval i = 1/10 { 
  2.         di "this is statement `i'" 
  3.         more 
  4. }

At each -more- I need to press the bar. 

What doesn't work with your code?

Is there an option that I can place inside a loop to make Stata stop, let
the user digest the output, and move on after that?
Much like the "more" and set more on/off, where I can press the spacebar
to move on.  This is to be placed inside a loop that generates a sequence
of graphs.  help more and help window manage did not bring me far.
