This paper, presented at the SUGI 20 Conference, April, 1995, describes some useful graphic displays which cannot be produced by the basic SAS/GRAPH procedures, and shows how they can be constructed by general macro programs, applicable to any dataset. Some examples are drawn from programs described in The SAS System for Statistical Graphics, First Edition.

The paper describes SAS tools for developing custom graphic displays and illustrates the use of these to:

- label points and curves
- add a data ellipse to a scatterplot
- produce graphs by combining separate panels (scatterplot matrix, interaction plot for n-way factorial designs)
- design a novel graphic display with SAS/IML graphics (a fourfold display for 2 x 2 x k frequency tables)
