Transforming variables and other improvements?

Discuss the jamovi platform, possible improvements, etc.

We have done the last computing class with jamovi after using SPSS for 9 sessions. The students liked the simplicity and instant results updates. Some issues:

1. They found very confusing the way to transform from continuous to categorical or from categorical to categorical, compared to SPSS with the two-sided boxes (old - new).

2. In regression analysis, it would be interesting to save the predicted and residuals.

3. The non-parametric 2 means comparison (Mann-Whitney) is in the T-Test menu, it would be cleared is separated like in the ANOVA menu below "Non-parametric", or move all non-parametric tests to a specific menu (like in SPSS).

4. The Exploration menu would be better for students distinguishing from the beginning Continuous and Categorical (Nominal and ordinal).

5. In regression analysis, would it be possible to include any heterocedasticity test (BPG, White, etc.)?
