Dear professors,
The default rotation in Mplus 5 is direct Quartimin. However, I would like to obtain
varimax and promax rotated loadings as well. Could you give me some suggestions on the command I need to get varimax and promax loadings in Mplus 5? Thank you very much!

ROTATION = VARIMAX; or ROTATION = PROMAX; See the ROTATION option in the user's guide.
