Hi Christine,

Increase the height of the plotting device (argument height in function pdf() -- see help(pdf)). And then play around with the settings for 'cex' and possibly 'xlim' in forest(). If you run the forest() command like this:

sav <- forest(...)

then you can see what the defaults are. The default settings may not be appropriate for forest plots witht this many effects.

I am currently working on my master’s thesis, a meta-analysis in social science. I included over 300 effect sizes, which I want to display by a forest plot. 
Unfortunately, the plot is because of the high number of effect sizes not clearly arranged (see attached picture).
Maybe there is a simple solution? 

Many thanks and best regards, Christine
