Thirty graphical tips Stata users should know

Stata's graphics were completely rewritten for Stata 8, with further key additions in later versions. Its official commands have, as usual, been supplemented by a variety of user-written programs. The resulting variety presents even experienced users with a system that undeniably is large, often appears complicated, and sometimes seems confusing. In this talk, I provide a personal digest of graphics strategy and tactics for Stata users emphasizing details large and small that, in my view, deserve to be known by all.
