st: Catplot (ssc) labelsize in scheme? Stata 11

Subject   st: Catplot (ssc) labelsize in scheme? Stata 11

A similar question to my previous one regarding ciplot (ssc). Everytime I call -catplot- (ssc) the labelsize is medsmall. My programming skills are zero but in the catplot.ado I cannot find a specification of labsize; so in contrast to my earlier question, I think I am able to control the labelsize in a scheme. But where?

Another way around, would there be a possibility to align actual bar height/width with labelsize (in catplot)
- Is barwidth working with catplot?



P.S.: @David Radwin: Thanks for pointing me to the "Visual Guide", but it is in the office and I am far away from it...

Betreff: Re: st: ciplot (ssc) - change markersymbol

This isn't anything to do with schemes, because, as you report, whatever your -scheme- choices, -ciplot- would override them.

Welcome to the world of programming! That is, if you want -ciplot- to default to circles, you need to clone the program and set your own defaults. It's now your program, except in so far as it was mine. You should use a different name.

Evidently, I preferred -dh- as default marker for myself, at least when -ciplot- was written.
