I have the same problem as Ricardo.
I tried using the -grc1leg- command, but I can not figure out how to use it.
I always end up with all the legends for every graph and an additional one
from using -grc1leg-.
Thus my questions is: How do I create one single legend?

The code I use is something like this:

************** Beginn example ****************
sysuse xtline1, clear

* Creating two more variable to mimic my data setup
gen cal_yesterday = L.calories
bysort person: gen first_half_year = (_n < 175)

* Draw three scater plots
scatter cal_yesterday calories day if person == 1, ///
	by(first_half_year, title("Tess")) ///
scatter cal_yesterday calories day if person == 2, ///
	by(first_half_year, title("Sam")) ///
scatter cal_yesterday calories day if person == 3, ///
	by(first_half_year, title("Arnold")) ///

* combine the three scatter plots
grc1leg g1 g2 g3
*************** End example *****************

Kind regards

You might try the user-written command -grc1leg- (since 1's often look like l's, that's "grc" + the numeral 1 + "leg").

Subject: st: graph combine&  single legend

I want to combine 4 graphs, each a plot of three lines, using -graph combine-. Because the legend for the graphs are all the same, I would like to have a single legend at the bottom. When I use -legend(off)- for three of the graphs, and leave the legend for the 4th graph, this 4th graph is smaller than the rest when I combine them. Any solutions will be appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
