Hello, I am trying to decompose fit indices as suggested by O'Boyle and Williams (2011). Thus first I specified the measurement model and constrained the parameters. This model is fitting well and converging fast. But when defining a path model, with constrained parameters of the measurement model,the model isn't converging even when I use more than 10.000+ iterations. No errors are reported in the output, it is just stated that maximum iterations are exceeded. Is there an way to deal with that issue?
Kind regards and thanks for your support.
