Customizing Stata graphs made easy (part 1)

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 article, 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.
