Known bugs, problems and workarounds
# both generate_XDS.INP and [[XDS]] do not seem to like spaces ("blanks") in file/directory names. While frame names rarely have a space in them, directories might, e.g. if an external disk has the label "John's USB disk" then this would be mounted on Linux as /media/John's USB disk/ and that would result in a error message from generate_XDS.INP and/or XDS. The '''workaround''' is to use a symlink on a different hard disk.
# ''Problem description: On the Mac, after loading frames, by clicking “generate XDS.INP”, the program gives some strange symbol “” in XDS.INP. And the more you click “save” button, the more “” appeared. This looks like <br>SPACE_GROUP_NUMBER=0  ! 0 if unknown <br>UNIT_CELL_CONSTANTS= 70 80 90 90 90 90  .''<br> The problem is due to the “Rich text” format in TextEdit when saving "generate_XDS.INP". It is solved by re-downloading the script, and changing format to Plain - everything is working now.
# On RHEL7 and clones, the Mate (version 1.8.2) and Gnome-classic desktop do not cooperate well with XDSGUI based on Qt (tested: versions 4.6.2 and 4.8.5). Symptoms: the pulldown menu for the untrusted areas in the Frame tab is not functional, and XDSGUI may hang if XDS.INP is re-written from within the Tools menu. Workaround: use the Gnome or KDE desktop.
