No, there is no canned way. But, as I mentioned, the standardized
loadings are the square roots of the R-square, which are available
directly from either -cfa1-. With -confa-, you'd need to be a little
bit more careful if you have cross-loadings of several factors on the
same variable, but the idea is still the same that you use -nlcom- (or
-display- if you don't care about the standard errors).
