Customizing Stata graphs made easy

Author

Abstract

The overall look of Stata's graphs is determined by so-called scheme files. Scheme files are system components, that is, they are part of the local Stata installation. In this note I argue that style settings deviating from default schemes should be part of the script producing the graphs, rather than being kept in separate scheme files, and I present a simple tool called -grstyle- that supports such practice.
