In SPSS, I am able to create a histogram from nominal or ordinal data and overlay a normal curve. This is useful when visualizing the distribution of response variables. Here is what one looks like - names have been changed to protect the innocent :)


I am not able to create the same diagram in Jamovi. If I choose Nominal or Ordinal, I then need to pick bar chart - which lacks the normal curve:


or, if I choose Continuous, then the density curve is multi-modal (which, while it makes sense, is not what I want):


Any tips on how I might tame this beast?
