Thats really, really cool !! I tried the new version 0.9.5.8. and was really thrilled to see principal axis factoring - as option to choose. So i tried it - but still get Initial Eigenvalues below Zero - in Spss the values of the Eigenvalues add up to the number of factors (items) you analyse - so either (and thats quite possible) there is something I dont understand (and theres lots of that) or maybe there is a bug in the analysis provided. Maybe you could check this.
Reason I write is - we would really love to tell students - use jamovi instead of spss - but when we can not reproduce (or understand) the results, which are different from what we teach students, we will have to wait - when it comes to prinicipal axis factoring - and it would be so cool - if this works out, cause spss does not do parallel analyses (except if you bring in a few sheets of syntax code) - and jamovi would be a really good alternativ for students.
