As was mentioned before, the problem is that the graph editor does not
work by changing the graph command but by directly editing the graph
object. This is a strength and a weakness: it allows you to do things
that are impossible with normal graph commands, but it cannot result
in a modified graph command that can be returned.

This does not mean that there are no Stata commands involved. You can
see what the commands are by using the recorder, and open the
resulting file. There is some explanation on how to interpret these
types of commands that directly manipulate graph objects in this talk
