Hi Julie,

Could you provide a reproducible example illustrating the issue?

This works just fine:

yi <- c(.1, .2, .3)
vi <- rep(.01, 3)
res <- rma(yi, vi, method="FE")

Maybe tau^2 is estimated to be zero in your case? Then the plot will look the same, except for the labeling:

res <- rma(yi, vi)
