Hi, I am trying to request a scree plot for an EFA in Mplus 7. Here's my syntax:
TITLE: EFA of original scales; DATA: FILE IS MPlus_dataset_without_hamd252627_incCPT2.csv; VARIABLE: NAMES ARE hama01-hama14, hamd01-hamd24; CATEGORICAL ARE hama01-hama14, hamd01-hamd24; MISSING ARE ALL (-9); OUTPUT: standardized; modindices; ANALYSIS: TYPE = EFA 1 5; ESTIMATOR IS WLSMV; ROTATION = VARIMAX; PLOT: TYPE = PLOT2
According to what I've read elsewhere online, in order to view the plot I need to click on "Graph" at the top of Mplus, and select "View Graphs". I then should select "Eigenvalues for exploratory factor analysis" and click on "View" to see the scree plot. This seems straightforward, but I don't see a "Graph" menu at the top of this version of Mplus and when I just run the syntax the scree plot is not shown in the output. Is there a different procedure I need to follow to produce the scree plot in this version of Mplus? I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here, so any suggestions to have on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated!

I'm running a Mac and have followed the instructions for viewing graphs in R. While I can see other graphs in R using this procedure, I'm unable to view the scree plot from an EFA. Is this available in R?
