Enhancements compared to current official version

  • Refinement of atomic coordinates has been removed from the automatic Rietveld refinement schedule due to frequent convergence problems.
  • When running indexing calculations with Dicvol, the "monoclinic" crystal system option is now active by default in the "Dicvol parameters" dialog.
  • You can now display the reference database library also by clicking on the database label in the status bar at the bottom of the Match! window.
  • Several bugs have been fixed:
    • A bug affecting the printing of the report using the menu command "File/Print/Report" has been fixed.
    • Due to a bug, the Dicvol result file was not read correctly in some cases, causing invalid peak correlation information in the table of peak data (indexing results dialog).
    • The peak intensities copied from indexing into a new manual entry in the match list were not shown (and could not be edited) in the "Edit manual entry data" dialog.
    • Some bugs affecting the calculation of profile data from imported peak list data have been resolved.
    • It was not possible to exclude pattern ranges if e.g. the left border of the selected range was too close to zero degrees 2theta.
    • Some minor bugs have been fixed.
