Ok.  Here it is.

 use metan_example_data.dta
metan cdeath tdeath cnodeath tnodeath, label(namevar=id) fixed or
xlabel(0.1, 1.0, 10) counts

I am trying to do the following to the resulting forest plot:

1.  Remove the light blue (or some color--sorry) border sorrounding the graph
2.  Increase the font size
3.  Change the grey box surrounding point estimate to black.
4.  Is there a way to have transparent background.

I used to do all of these by copying into powerpoint--> ungroup-->
edit.  Now I use Mac, I cant save it as WMF anymore.  So no more
ungrouping.  The graph editor doesnt allow me to do any of the above.
Again I use Stata 10.
thanks,
Sripal.
