In Jann (2017; University of Bern Social Sciences Working Paper No. 29) I presented a command called -grstyle- that simplifies changing the default look of Stata graphs. The command, however, still relies on idiosyncratic scheme file syntax, which may not be well known to many users. In this paper I therefore present an extension called -grstyle set- that automizes the creation of sets of scheme file entries for a number of potentially useful adjustments, without much typing and without requiring much knowledge about scheme file syntax. Covered topics include, for example, the rendering of the background and coordinate system, the placement and look of the legend, the assignment of colors, symbols, and line patterns, and the assignment of relative or absolute sizes.
