Scott, You are a lifesaver. This works perfectly. I must confess I am
intrigued as to how you came up with this solution?
On a personal note, I do think one should have this possibility
available from inside the editor, rather than hacking stata graph

This appears to work in swithing the location of graph 4 with graph 1:

sysuse sp500,clear
xtile g= date, n(4)
twoway bar change date , by(g,  rescale  ) xlabel(, labsize(*.7))
graph save Graph "C:\Documents and

Then open up the Graph.gph file in an editor.

Edit the lines 447-451 that start with __NOLOG__:

__NOLOG__ .graphs[1] =.__Map.K820a880.ref
__NOLOG__ .graphs[2] =.__Map.K82de008.ref
__NOLOG__ .graphs[3] =.__Map.K8338df8.ref
__NOLOG__ .graphs[4] =.__Map.K8392de0.ref


__NOLOG__ .graphs[4] =.__Map.K820a880.ref
__NOLOG__ .graphs[2] =.__Map.K82de008.ref
__NOLOG__ .graphs[3] =.__Map.K8338df8.ref
__NOLOG__ .graphs[1] =.__Map.K8392de0.ref

save the file as Graph_new.gph and open the file in Stata

graph use "C:\Documents and

not just insert holes or render down instead of across. I cannot find an
option to do this in the graph editor. Am I missing something or do I
have to ask the sender to change the underlying categry coding ??
