update: figure schemes

I changed the code for the previously introduced stata figures schemes colorblind & plottig. Notice that I also changed the name of colorblind into plotplainblind (and blind into plotplain). The new files are now available for download:

The newest version of the schemes can now be downloaded within Stata. In Stata type:

ssc install blindschemes, replace all

set scheme plottig, permanently

Changes include (as of version 1.1):

  • all legends moved to the right hand side of the plotarea
  • areas of confidence intervals are solid and gray (distinguishable from background)
  • xylines in plotplain are no longer vvthin, but kept thin
  • size of markers in legends was increased
  • distance between markers in legends and text was decreased
  • the linepattern of the 3rd line is no longer longdash but shortdash (in plotplain; plotplainblind; plottigblind)
  • distance between the title of the y-axis and the y-axis was increased
  • plottigblind no longer uses gray color for lines, markers
  • plotplain & plotplainblind use darker and thicker gridlines

The following paper introduces the schemes and gives a brief “how to” on producing on schemes in Stata: [PDF].

Notice: Code comes free, but programmers put a lot of work into it. Thus, please cite programmers’ papers/publications introducing code.
