I am having a problem using the -marginsplot- function in STATA.  I want to "zoom-in" on a certain area of the graph.  In other words, I set a hard min and max on the Y- and X-axes.  The code looks something similar to:

.marginsplot, ytitle("my title", size(medsmall) margin(small)) ylabel(.02 .06, labsize(small) angle(horizontal)) xlabel(0(15)90, labsize(small))

I am getting the graph to look almost the way I want it to be shown.  The X-axis min and max are perfect - begins at 0 and cuts-off at 90 with 15 unit increments.  The Y-axis only shows .02 and .06 however, there are curves that dip far below .02 and STATA automatically scales the graph to show those lines.  If you can imagine, the .02 rests in the middle of the Y-Axis and there is a lot of white space below.  

I just want to code in an option to zoom in on a specific area to see clearer differentiation.  Does anyone know how (or if its possible) to do this?
