Linda/Bengt,
I have a factor mixture model (FMM). And I'm trying to modify my FMM syntax so that I can change which class' factor means are zero. I'd like the most symptomatic class to have their means fixed to zero. But I can't seem to locate what syntax to use to change start values in factor mixture model. I'd appreciate your suggestions.

MODEL:
%overall%
f1 by s1-s5;
f2 by s6-s7;
f3 by s8-s15;
f4 by s16-s17 ;
c#1 ON p1-p5 ;

Factor means are zero in the last class as the default. You would need to free them in the last class by specifying:

[f1-f4];

and fix them to zero in the class where you want them to be zero by specifying:

[f1-f4@0];
