You could use the nodraw option when creating the graphs.

Hi Robert,

This is just a stab in the dark, but couldn't you prefix your -graph- command with -quietly- to visually suppress the output?

Hi Statalisters

I am producing a large sequence of graphs within a loop, each of which I want to export as a standard image format like .tif ; for this application I am not interested in the .gph file.

Is there any way of getting the .tif files without having to display each graph in turn (which slows things down)? It seems that -graph export- needs the image to be displayed.
