New Maud version 2.65

At the Caen school we do a lot of testing and we are correcting bugs quickly on the new beta version.
The new one, 2.65 starts to be quite stable and at the moment we haven’t discovered stopping bugs with it. This version also reset the preferences has it is necessary and put the examples in the User_home/Documents/maud folder.
The instrument.mdb and structures.mdb databases have been moved to the examples directory.
Post here if you find some problems with it.

  1. Hi,

    Its really troublesome to use this software. I cant find the alzrc.dat files to upload. Unfortunately cant proceed

    • The alzrc.dat file in the new Maud version is located in the example directory. Depending if you work on MacOS, Windows or Linux its location may be a bit different, but generally is by default extracted by Maud on first run in your Documents/maud/examples directory.

  2. There are problems with start up:
    Jul 19, 2016 3:15:47 PM java.util.prefs.WindowsPreferences
    WARNING: Could not open/create prefs root node Software\JavaSoft\Prefs at root 0x80000002. Windows RegCreateKeyEx(…) returned error code 5.

    cctbx native library not loaded, using SgInfo!

    • The first problem is the real one. Actually is mostly a java bug affecting the preferences. Ignore it if Maud run anyway, it is just a WARNING from the System. Someone has already filled a bug report to Oracle on this and hopefully will be corrected in the future.

      The second one you can ignore also. Maud in the future will use cctbx for all crystallographic related computation. The actual version already checks for the cctbx library (I am testing with it, but it is not ready), but it is not included, so Maud issue the warning and proceed with the SgInfo crystallographic library embedded in Maud. When the transition to cctbx will be completed, I will include the cctbx library and this warning will disappear as Maud will use cctbx.

  3. The colour of observed/ calculated intensity profiles changes from blue/black to black/red. How can I change it?

    • The plot colors can be changed in the Maud preferences (in the Analysis menu of the principal window select Preferences). Search for the preferences:
      plot.markerColor (the data points)
      plot.fitColor (the fit)
      they have associated an integer corresponding to a color with the following order:
      0 black
      1 red
      2 green
      3 blue
      4 magenta
      5 cyan
      6 orange
      7 green
      8 pink
      9 gray
      etc. up to 14. Over 14 it return to 0 and up.
      The scheme is used also when you are plotting multiple datafiles by changing each successive pattern with the corresponding color.
