Hello, I am running Mplus 6.12 on Mac, trying to run a multilevel model. I'm having trouble getting the program to recognize the "|" symbol to define slope variables. When I try to input into Mplus the program puts in a space. Is there something I'm missing? I'm new to this program and its possible that its a very simple mistake.

Can you open one of the Chapter 6 examples and copy the | symbol from that input and then paste it into your input to see if it still adds the space instead of the symbol?

Yes, unfortunately the | symbol is still not read when copy and pasting Chapter 6 example input. Thank you for your prompt reply.

Please open Example 6.1 in the Editor and send a screen shot of this to Include information about the language version of the Mac you are using. Your keyboard may not be mapped correctly for that key.

Changing font to Monaco in Mplus resolved the issue. Also text files in "Windows formatted txt" were the only ones my Mac could recognize. I hope this helps fellow Mac users who might have trouble :-)

I saw this post and was wondering if I could get some help from you. I have used MPlus previously on a PC but am a new mac user so I am not sure of where to store my files and how to display my output. I have read the help files repeatedly and saved my data and other files in my user directory but I am still not able to run the necessary analysis.
