The Structural Equation Models red triangle menu contains the following options:

Path Diagram Settings

Contains the following options to modify the path diagram display:

Customize Diagram

Enables you to customize many aspects of the path diagram. See Customize Diagram Appearance Options.

Layout

Contains two options that change the overall shape of the path diagram. You can choose between a Left to Right layout or a Top to Bottom layout.

Tip: You can also drag items in the path diagram to change the arrangement of specific items.

Copy Diagram

Saves an image of the path diagram to the clipboard. To retain the highest possible quality, paste the clipboard image as a vector graphic.

Copy Diagram Properties

Copies the current path diagram properties to the clipboard. You can then paste the properties into another SEM path diagram.

Paste Diagram Properties

Pastes the path diagram properties from the clipboard into the current SEM path diagram.

Descriptive Statistics

Contains the following options to produce descriptive statistics:

Univariate Simple Statistics

Shows or hides a univariate simple statistics report. The statistics in this report are estimated for each column independently from other columns that might have missing data.

Full Information Multivariate Statistics

Shows or hides a multivariate simple statistics report. The statistics in this report are estimated with full information maximum likelihood to account for missing data.

Launch Explore Outliers

Launches the Explore Outliers platform. See Modeling Utilities in Predictive and Specialized Modeling.

Launch Explore Missing Values

(Not available when there are no missing values.) Launches the Explore Missing Values platform. See Modeling Utilities in Predictive and Specialized Modeling.

Add Manifest Variables

Enables you to add new manifest variables to the current model. After you select new manifest variables to add, a new Structural Equation Models report is launched. The new report uses the existing model specification with the newly added manifest variables.

Remove Manifest Variables

Enables you to launch a new Structural Equation Models report with the specified manifest variables removed. After you select manifest variables to remove, a new report is launched. The new report uses the existing model specification with the specified manifest variables removed.

Copy Model Specification

Copies the current structural equation model specifications to the clipboard. You can then paste the model specifications into another SEM platform report.

Paste Model Specification

Pastes the model specifications from the clipboard into the current model specifications.

See Local Data Filters in Reports, Redo Menus in Reports, and Save Script Menus in Reports in Using JMP for more information about the following options:

Local Data Filter

Shows or hides the local data filter that enables you to filter the data used in a specific report.

Redo

Contains options that enable you to repeat or relaunch the analysis. In platforms that support the feature, the Automatic Recalc option immediately reflects the changes that you make to the data table in the corresponding report window.

Save Script

Contains options that enable you to save a script that reproduces the report to several destinations.

Save By-Group Script

Contains options that enable you to save a script that reproduces the platform report for all levels of a By variable to several destinations. Available only when a By variable is specified in the launch window.
