Error Notes with my Schemes using Stata 15: A solution!

NOTICE: This issue has been addressed with the latest update on SSC archive (as of 1st December 2017)!

As described in an earlier post there appear some error notes when you use my schemes in Stata 15 (see: here).

I still do not have access to Stata 15, but Scott Merryman has. He presented a fix in the Stata forum.

To fix the issue open each scheme file with a standard text editor and add the following lines to the scheme:

anglestyle symbol zero
anglestyle psymbol zero
alignstroke axisline inside
alignstroke background inside
alignstroke ci_area inside
alignstroke ci inside
alignstroke clegend inside
alignstroke dendrogram inside
alignstroke dot_area inside
alignstroke dot inside
alignstroke dotmark inside
alignstroke dots inside
alignstroke foreground inside
alignstroke grid inside
alignstroke histogram inside
alignstroke legend inside
alignstroke major_grid inside
alignstroke map center
alignstroke matrixmark inside
alignstroke matrix_plotregion center
alignstroke mat_label_box center
alignstroke minor_grid inside
alignstroke minortick inside
alignstroke pie inside
alignstroke p inside
alignstroke plotregion inside
alignstroke refline inside
alignstroke refmarker inside
alignstroke reverse_big inside
alignstroke sunflower inside
alignstroke text_option inside
alignstroke tick inside
alignstroke xyline inside
alignstroke zyx2 inside

alignstroke p1 inside
alignstroke p2 inside
alignstroke p3 inside
alignstroke p4 inside
alignstroke p5 inside
alignstroke p6 inside
alignstroke p7 inside
alignstroke p8 inside
alignstroke p9 inside
alignstroke p10 inside
alignstroke p11 inside
alignstroke p12 inside
alignstroke p13 inside
alignstroke p14 inside
alignstroke p15 inside

I will add these lines to all my schemes tomorrow and send them to the SSC archive. I don’t have an idea if the fix works (Again I do not have access to Stata 15). According to the Stata forum the fix works.

Please: if you still experience any error notes after adding these lines, please feel free to drop me an email!

Happy plotting!
