We recently received a comment on a submitted paper in which the reviewer asked for a report of the standard errors of the standaridized parameters we reported in our model.
The model was a basic CFA in which we reported the standardized parameter estimates shown in the "StdXY" column of the Mplus output because the estimates are standarized using the variances of the contiuous latent variables as well as the variances of the outcome variables.
Is there somewhere in the output that would indicate what the standard errors for these estimates would be?
Thanks for your help.

The regular output does not give SEs for standardized parameter estimates. The standard errors for standardized estimates need to be obtained via Model Indirect (for slopes).
