Oops.

In Stata 10 I have no trouble chaning the size and color of individual labels and other graph elements. No bold text, of course.

Am I mixing up threads, or did Sripal say he is a Stata 10 user?

In Stata 11 I have no problem editing individual labels to change their
size/color.

To make them bold, just change the relevant text in the id variable from
"Text" to "{bf:Text}"

You could use the official example from -help metan-:

use http://fmwww.bc.edu/repec/bocode/m/metan_example_data, clear

If you give an example command that generates your forest plot, and
describe the changes you want done to that plot, I'll bet Statalisters
could make it happen.  Or at least would have a better shot at it than
now, not knowing exactly how you generated the basic plot.

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.

Which "bold option" are you referring to? Stata 10 did not feature
options
for bold text on graphs, as far as I recall. That was introduced in
Stata
11.

See -help whatsnew10to11-:
"See 7.  You can now put bold and italic text, Greek letters, symbols,
superscripts, and subscripts on graphs!"

Well there are a few things where the graphics editor doesnt work for
me.  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.

But I wonder what you want in your graph that you can't do with the
Stata
graphics editor?

Hi,

I recently switched over to stata 10 for mac.  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.
