Thanks very much for all the updates.

Do you think this can be solved by changing the order of drawing? I
mean, by first drawing the confidence intervals and then the other
lines on top of it.

As I understand, the fix involves vertically listing each variable
with its own little summary statistics table. But this is unintuitive
and makes reading the whole thing and comparing different variables
difficult. Could you reformat this screen to show horizontally 5 or 6
variables at a time please? I think this is what most programs do.

more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting
moment.” - Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
