Dear Grace Thanks for creating an example that illustrates so clearly what you want to do. Here is an example that addresses your first three questions sysuse nlsw88, clear * First - rename labels for union label define newlab 0 "First title" 1 "Second title" label values union newlab graph hbar wage, over( occ, axis(off) sort(1) ) /// blabel( group, pos(base) color(bg) size(vlarge)) /// ytitle( "" ) /// by( union, /// title("Average Hourly Wage, 1988, Women Aged 34-46") /// note("Source: 1988 data from NLS, U.S. Dept. of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics") ) /// aspectratio(2) xsize(3) ysize(6) First, the label define and label values allows you to change the titles of the individual graphs by changing the value labels associated with the -by()- variable. Second, the -size(vlarge)- option (within -blabel()-) allows you to change the size of the text. Third, the -aspectratio(2) xsize(3) ysize(6)- options give you control over the aspect ratio, as well as the size of the graph in terms of the height and width. For your last question, you can use the graph recorder and save the -point and clicks-, but it does not save the recording in a format that allows you to type them into the review window. Instead, the recording can be replayed. See -help graph_editor##recorder- for more information. I hope this helps, Michael N.
