Answering my own question, for anyone interested:

Instead of combining all my subgraphs in one step, I combined them in two steps, using -ycommon- and/or -xcommon- when suitable.

Hello _all,

would anyone know of a way to automatically get the range of the x- and
y-axis used by Stata in a -twoway- graph?

I need to write a small command to automate the production of a specific
graphic involving -graph combine-, and for the result to look nice, I
need to make some axis coincide, which in turns require that I set the
-xlabel- and -ylabel- of subgraphics to match those of the main -twoway-
graph (xhich itself is a superposition of a scatterplot and of a
nonparametric regression with confidence intervals).

The program would implement the following steps:

1. get the name of two variables from the syntax
2. draw the main -twoway- graph
3. somehow get the labels range of that graph
4. use the ranges to tweak the secondary graphs so that everything looks

And I'm stuck at step 3...
