Hi all,

I'm attempting to create forest plots along the lines of those produced by
the "meta" or "metan" commands, but using new-style (v8+) graphics syntax s=
o
I can then modify them.  I'm getting pretty close, but can't see a solution
to the following:

The "metan" command gives you the trial names to the left of the y-axis, an=
d
effect sizes, confidence intervals and % weights to the right of the y-axis=
=2E
    This I can re-produce.  However, these columns of variable lables also
have titles directly above them, as a heading.  Using the axis title option=
s
I can only get the titles to appear off to the left or right of the variabl=
e
lables, not directly above them.  Is this possible?

Also, a more minor point:  to get the trial names to the left and effect
sizes etc to the right, I've used multiple axes, with two identical y-vars
with different value labels.  However, even after specifying the axis range
and scales identically, they still don't seem to quite line up with each
other.  Almost, but not quite.  Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,

David Fisher.
