Hi everyone!

I am new to meta-analysis methodology and I am using R software to do my
quantitative synthesis. I am using random effects model to analyse my
individual studies through rma function in metafor package.

By using 'forest(mymodelname)', I have a basic forest plot where my
individual studies are shown as Study 1, Study 2, and so on. How could I
get the author and year instead? It would be better if I can get them
arranged according to the observed effect size - is that possible? Also, I
would like to change the title of my X axis to 'Estimated Effect Size'
rather than the default title 'Observed Outcome'. Lastly, would it be
possible to specify the exact weight assigned to each study in the forest
Many thanks in advance for your help.
