st: Problems with producing an acceptable Forest plot

Hey there,

I'm urgently in need of help. After days of search and talkms with so called
experts I'm still as smart as before.:-(

I'm doing a meta-analysis with the meta-command like this:

"meta  var1  se_var1, graph (r) id(region) cline xline (0.06,0.075) fmult(3)
b2title (Prevalences) xlab (0.050, 0.055, 0.060,

But the produced forest plot is not acceptable. The graph editor does not
work for this kind of plot. And nobody knew why this is like this. Can you
help me with that?

And the biggrest problem for me is now that the regions are anumber of about
100. That means, that 100 regions on the x-axis is completely impossible to
show my professors, it does not fit on one A4-page, so besides some graphic
optimizations I of course need to cut the plot, make two or more parts of
it. Can anyone please help me?

Thank you very much in advance.
