Hi Steve,

First of all, why use graph2tex? Stata has  the ability to save a graph as an eps file in all versions (Mac, Unix, and Windows), so it seems that there's no need to introduce an extra possible source of code incompatibility. For example:

sysuse auto
scatter mpg weight
graph export mpg_weight.eps, replace

Now you have an eps file without that extra step.

As for adding things into Beamer, try using 


I think in some cases adding the file extension can actually make a difference. But that's just a guess.
