Thank you for the clarification.

Looking back at the -help twoway_options- this is made clear in the remarks.

"...the by() option applies to the entire graph and in theory you should type

. twoway lfitci mpg weight, stdf || scatter mpg weight, ms(O) ||, by(foreign, total row (1))


. twoway (lfitci mpg weight, stdf) (scatter mpg weight, ms(O)), by(foreign, total row(1))

to demonstrate your understanding of that fact."

Thanks again, Scott
