Or at least would have a better shot at it than now, not knowing exactly how you generated the basic plot. - NW On 3/23/2010 9:42 AM, Sripal Kumar wrote:My biggest problem is increasing the font size. Even if I use "huge" or "v huge", nothing happens and the font on the forest plot is still small. I wonder if this is only for a forest plot.

In a forest plot (for meta analysis), even though I try to increase the font size of the txt using the editor, nothing seem to happen. Moreover, it creates a frame around the graph, which I like to remove. In addition, I prefer to selectively highlight the main results of the plot by using the bold option. None of these work or rather, I havent figured out an easy way to do it.

When I used to use windows and Stata 9, I used to edit the graphs by right clicking and ungrouping. I cant seem to do with graphs created in mac. The graph editor for stata 10 doesnt permit me to make all the edits I want. Is there a way to save the graph so that I can use word or powerpoint to ungroup it and edit it. thanks, Sripal. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/-- -------------------------------------------------------------- Nicholas Winter 434.924.6994 t Assistant Professor 434.924.3359 f Department of Politics nwinter@virginia.edu e University of Virginia faculty.virginia.edu/nwinter w S385 Gibson Hall, South Lawn Map: http://tinyurl.com/uvaSLmap * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
