Re: Re: st: Problem with -graph use- and earlier graph versions

Thanks to Clive Nichols for his suggestion from a few days ago and my apologies for not responding sooner. (I've been on the road and had unexpected difficulties with internet access.)

I tried all the currently available schemes in a -graph use oldgraph, scheme(...)- command and observed that:

sj, s2mono (the "base scheme" for sj), and s2manual all fail to distinguish the different line graphs.

s2gmanual produces a stranger result: there are three curves on the graph and it distinguishes one from the other two, but uses the same line style for the second and third dependent variables.

The s1* schemes all work correctly, as does s2color.

I didn't try the economist scheme, as I never really use it.

I'm not sure what all of this means. The phenomenon is pervasive: it happens with every multi-curve line graph I've tried that I originally created under version 8.1. And it occurs on both my laptop and my desktop machines. (Both running Windows XP and the most recent updates of Stata version 9.1)
