I am going to examine a predictor of the latent class. But this predictor is a categorical variable. Is it still possible to use this command "Auxiliary = X (r3step)"?

Yes, but you'll need to turn your predictor into a set of binary dummy variables

Thanks for reply. Suppose X has 3 categories. What commands can I use to turn X into binary dummy variables in Mplus?

You have to create the dummy variables - no option in Mplus for automatically doing this.
