without resizing.

I apologize for coming so late to this party, but I missed Paul's post
and was just made aware of it by a colleague.

Paul is right that -graph combine- does not support combining two
graphs exactly as they were originally drawn.  Even so, I think we can
get pretty close.  I suggest,

    . graph combine a b, cols(1) iscale(1) ysize(8)


    -- a and b    are the names of the original graphs

    -- cols(1)    requests a single column for the two subgraphs

    -- iscale(1)  specifies that the original font and marker 
                  sizes be used

    -- ysize(8)   specifies that the graph be 8 inches high -- twice 
                  the height of a default Stata graph.  Paul should
                  substitute twice his original graph heights for "8"
