Re: st: ordering graphs in panels

I assume (in the absence of any actual info) you are doing something like: . sysuse auto, clear . hist price, by(rep78, holes(1) noiyaxes) but I don't see why you don't want something like . la def rep78 1 "Title One" 2 "Title Two" 3 "Etc." . la val rep78 rep78 . hist price, by(rep78, holes(3) noiyaxes) by which I mean: do you really want an orphaned y-axis on the left?

See also -gr combine- with which you can make a bunch of graphs and then stick them together in any crazy way. You could specify different titles for each, and could probably avoid creating any new variables.
