I am running a growth model with Mplus 3. The variance of the slope was significant. Since the estimate was too small, it was beyond the third decimal place.
Apart from rescaling the variables, it is possible to change the no. of decimal places displayed?
Estimates S.E. Est./S.E.
S 0.000 0.000 2.378

Thanks a lot!

There is no option to change the number of decimal places displayed. Rescaling the variables is the only option unless you save the results. The results are saved with more decimals places.

Adding to the response above, you can get more decimals by dividing all time scores by say 10 - this makes the slope factor have a higher metric, i.e. larger mean and variance.
