40<H2>Requested EXPGUI improvements</H2><DL>
41The suggested improvements obtained from EXPGUI users are listed here.
42Prioritization is based in part on input from users, from back when
43EXPGUI development was supported by NIST via ATP intramural program.
44At present EXPGUI development is progressing slowly, since the work
45is not funded.
46<P>
47In the list below, dates for requests are noted in parenthesis when known.
48Additional suggestions and input on priorities are welcome; send them to
49the author of EXPGUI,

237Additional features & fixes added to EXPGUI since mid-2000 are listed here,
238with an approximate date the features were added and the EXPGUI version
239where the feature was added. This list includes only the more significant
240changes.
241For a complete list of all changes for the source files
242see <A HREF="revlog.html">the EXPGUI Revision log.</A>
243<P>
244
245<DT>
246Transform Atoms - Origin 1 -> 2
247<DD>
248The option to transform Origin 1 settings to Origin 2 is now provided
249in the windows raised by th "xform atom(s)" button on the phase panel.
250(9/2005, 1.77)
251
252<DT>
253DRAWxtl Export
254<DD>
255DRAWxtl export has been enhanced to display vectors for magnetic phases
256and to launch DRAWxtl directly.
257(9/2005, 1.77)
258
259<DT>Spherical Harmonic Fix
260<DD>In June 2005, GSAS was changed to allow more spherical harmonic terms
261by renaming the CRSxODF records. EXPGUI now converts old records to the
262new format and can read them.
263(9/2005, 1.77)
264
265<DT>Import coordinates from .EXP file
266<DD>Fix bug introduced when new all-in-one Tcl/Tk package was implemented
267(missing package require Tk).
268(9/2005, 1.77)
269
270<DT>Print from LSTVIEW (Unix only)
271<DD>Selected text can be sent to lpr command
272(3/2005, 1.76)
273
274<DT>Misc fixes from RBVD
275<DD>Fix profile 4 labels, add support for #5, add LS Band control, add
276extra digit to PRNT for extra option, note Pawley phase.
277(3/2005, 1.76)
278
279<DT>Prevent use of Zero & SHFT (+ TRANS) parameters together
280<DD>A common GSAS error is to refine a zero correction together with
281the Bragg-Brentano corrections (SHFT & TRANS). When Zero is refined,
282TRANS & SHFT are now turned off and disabled.
283(3/2005, 1.76)
284
285
286<DT>Cleanup/Bug fixes
287<DD>Require BWidget package; provide a clear error message when not found.
288Fix vector access in liveplot (not broken?) & excledt for BLT2.4z.
289More documentation changes.
290(9/2004, 1.75)
291<DT>Installation/instructions
292<DD>New GSAS/EXPGUI packages have been created for
293all platforms using the new Tcl/Tk starkits.
294The installation instructions for Windows, SGI/Linux & Mac OS X have
295been extensively revised.
296(9/2004, 1.74)
297<DT>WINUTILS
298<DD>EXPGUI now can use the WINUTILS or WINEXEC package to run
299GSAS programs in a COMMAND.COM window on Windows-95/-98 and -ME.
300This was needed to update to a newer Tcl/Tk release that fixes
301a hang in -XP. Note that WINUTILS & WINEXEC are not used
302in -NT/-2000/-XP.
303Also, misc "package require" etc. to use Tcl/Tk Starkit (all platforms).
304(9/2004, 1.74)
305<DT>Coordinate export to DRAWXTL
306<DD>new export routine creates a .STR file for the
307very nice
308<A HREF="http://www.nist.gov/cgi-bin/exit_nist.cgi?url=
309http://www.lwfinger.net/drawxtl/">DRAWXTL</A> visualization program.
310(9/2004, 1.74)
311<DT>Coordinate export to CIF
312<DD>new export routine creates a bare-bones CIF file with coordinates
313for a phase.
314(9/2004, 1.73)
315<DT>Fix non-ASCII character bug
316<DD>A bug was fixed that previously allowed EXPGUI to place
317non-ASCII characters into a .EXP file. GSAS could not read these files.
318This may not address every possible way this could happen (I was bit
319by this before, see note on v1.64), but should catch a lot more of these
320problems.
321(9/2004, 1.73)
322
323<DT>zoom fixes for BLT2.4z
324<DD>BLT 2.4z changes, yet again the binding for zooming; EXCLEDT & BKGEDIT
325were updated to address this. The best cure for this is probably to not
326use the mouse buttons for other purposes.
327(5/2004, 1.72)
328<DT>LIVEPLOT ignore bad element attributes
329<DD>if a bad color value, etc. was saved for liveplot, the program would
330not start; this has been fixed.
331(5/2004, 1.72)
332<DT>Open Console
333<DD>An "open console" command has been added to the help menu in EXPGUI,
334LSTVIEW, LIVEPLOT, BKGFIT, WIDPLT & ABSPLT to help with debugging
335(5/2004, 1.72)
336
337<DT>Misc bug fixes (from Lachlan)
338<DD>make sure initial alpha1:2 ratio is 0.5 not 0.0; fix INSTEDIT none button;
339save changes before BKGEDIT.
340(5/2004, 1.71)
341<DT>LIVEPLOT
342<DD>Add (obs-calc)/sigma plotting to LIVEPLOT
343<BR>Use arrow keys to move zoom region around (convenient!)
344(4/2004, 1.71)
345<DT>Fox export
346<DD>Flag origin 2 space groups for FOX XML output
347(4/2004, 1.71)
348<DT>INSTEDIT bug
349<DD>Add ITYP line to instrument parameter file
350(4/2004, 1.71)
351<DT>Scan plot zoom
352<DD>The zoom region in LIVEPLOT, EXCLEDT & BKGEDIT can be moved around
353with the arrow keys (convenient!)
354(4/2004, 1.71)
355
356<DT>Customization for OS X
357<DD>On OS X, EXPGUI will set app & define icon for .EXP files
358(1/2004, 1.69)
359
360<DT>CIF updates
361<DD>Update CIF codes to use different indexing scheme for dictionaries
362(12/2003, 1.68)
363
364<DT>reflection mark bug in excledt
365<DD>Fix edit broken close button for edit reflection marks in excledt; remove
366unneeded phases from option list; implement reflection mark shortcuts [press
3671 for phase 1,...]
368(12/2003, 1.65)
369
370<DT>Fix "Chinese date bug"
371<DD>Windows computers set to operate with Chinese inserted timezone reference
372into .EXP history record with chinese characters; this made .EXP file invalid
373within GSAS. The time zone is no longer recorded.
374(11/2003, 1.64)
375
376<DT>Change "Use new name" for archived .EXP files
377<DD>If you are reloading an archived .EXP file, you can copy it to be the
378latest version of the current .EXP file, or supply a new name. Previously,
379it saved the current file under a new name -- what was I thinking then?
380(11/2003, 1.64)
381
382<DT>OS X compatible
383<DD>This version of EXPGUI runs under Macintosh OS X(!)
384(11/2003, 1.64)

388pass for use with multibank diffractometers
389(8/2003, 1.62)
390
391<P>
392<DT>Instrument parameter file editor
393<DD>This is used to modify and create instrument parameter files
394(5/2003, 1.61)
395
396<DT>Absorption correction big fix.
397<DD>The problem where a change made by EXPGUI causes EXPEDT to garble
398the ABSCOR record has been located and fixed, finally. Thanks are due to
399detailed bug reports from 3 different people, so that this bug could be
400tracked down!
401(5/2003, 1.61)
402
403
404<DT>Change .gsas_config to c:\gsas.config on windows
405<DD>The name ~/.gsas_config makes sense in UNIX but is clumsy in Windows
406(5/2003, 1.61)
407
408<DT>LIVEPLOT export
409<DD>Liveplot now exports data to FOX and .CSV files (to produce publication
410quality graphics).
411(4/2003, 1.60)
412
413<DT>Export to FOX
414<DD>EXPGUI can now export coordinates & raw data to FOX
415(Free Objects for Xtallography, objcryst.sourceforge.net)
416via XML.
417(9/2002, 1.58) & 
418(4/2003, 1.60)
419
420<DT>TOF bug fixes, POWPREF nagging
421<DD>The "add histogram", EXCLEDT and BKGEDIT sections were reworked to
422correct errors in handling TOF datasets. EXPGUI flags changes that
423would require POWPREF to be run before GENLES and warns if POWPREF is not
424run.
425(4/2003, 1.60)
426
427<DT>GSAS2CIF, FillCIF & CIFSelect
428<DD>The GSAS2CIF program has been rewritten, the FillCIF utility
429has been created to edit the new CIF templates
430and the new CIFSelect utility is provided to edit distance & angle publication
431flags. A new <a href="gsas2cif.html">GSAS2CIF web page</A> has been created to describe the process.
432(9/2002, 1.58)
433
434
435<DT>Fix profile constraint bug
436<DD>Profile constraints now must have a histogram & phase selected;
437defaults are used, where appropriate.
438(9/2002, 1.58)
439
440<DT>Profile Constraint bug fixes
441<DD>The cancel button is fixed & the continue button for new constraints
442works only when 1 or more terms are selected.
443(7/2002, 1.56)
444
445<DT>Show cursor position in LIVEPLOT
446<DD>Cursor position can optionally be displayed in LIVEPLOT/BKGEDIT
447(press "L" for live cursor).
448(2/2002, 1.55)
449
450<DT>Bug fixes

456the absorption parameters.
457(1/2002, 1.55)
458
459<DT>Coordinate Import/Export

461export_*.tcl files. Export to MSI .xtl, SHELX & Platon .spf files
462is now supported.
463<BR>
464Import from .xtl & .spf (PLATON) files. For
465.xtl import, automatically shift Origin 1 to origin 2.
466<BR>
467Better translation/checking of space group names on import. Space groups are
468better checked against spacegroup.ref in import_cif.tcl as was added
469to import_spf.tcl & import_xtl.tcl.
470(1/2002, 1.54)
471
472<DT>Support macromolecular phases.
473<DD>mm phases can be edited on phase panel & a mm constraints
474sub-panel has been added. Also add programs ramafit & gsas2pdb to menus.
475(1/2002, 1.54)
476
477<DT>ABSPLT
478<DD>Display absorption/reflectivity correction
479(new program).
480(1/2002, 1.54)
481

491the edit tickmarks menu.
492<BR>
493Plots can now be exported to GRACE (aka xmgr) to
494produce publication-quality graphics. A similar
495feature for a Windows program,
496preferably a common and not overly expensive (at least for academic users),
497if one can be found that accepts ASCII command files.
498(1/2002, 1.54)
499
500<DT>LSTVIEW enhancements<DD>
501LSTVIEW can now be used to plot R-factors as a function of the
502cycle number. If the summary of shifts output option is on,

551Fix -NT & -2000 bug in bringing up web pages
552
553<DT>Dummy Histograms<DD>
554Dummy histograms are used to simulate powder diffraction patterns.
555It is now possible to set them up in EXPEDT using the "add histogram"
556button.
557(9/2001, 1.47)
558
559<DT>
560Histogram flags
561<DD>
562The use/do not use flag for histograms can now be set using a button
563on the histogram panel.

572
573<DT>
574Adjustable screen font selection
575<DD>
576Font size can now be selected from a menu. Convenient, as well as
577perhaps improving on utility for folks with visual disabilities.
578The customization discussion in expgui_cfg.html
579now tells how to do override the default families & relative sizes.
580(9/2001, 1.46)
581
582<DT>
583Add Marquardt damping, LeBail damping to GUI
584<DD>
585These parameters are on "LS Controls" panel, along with
586the convergence parameter. The <a HREF="expgui1.html">documentation for this
587panel</A>
588has also been expanded
589to better explain what these options do. (7/2001, 1.44)
590
591<DT>
592Fixed background points (BKGEDIT)
593<DD>
594Fits a Chebeshev polynomial to a set of fixed points input by a user.
595If need be (not recommended, though) the background points
596can be input to GSAS as fixed background values. (7/2001, 1.44)
597<DT>
598"doc-less" install
599<DD>
600Allow doc web pages to be read from www.ncnr.nist.gov, if not present on
601local system (6/2001, 1.43)
602

604Load archived files (Unix only)
605<DD>
606A convenient way to load archived versions of the .EXP file has been
607added to the EXPNAM command (4/2001, 1.42).
608
609<DT>
610Sort atoms to be added
611<DD>
612A convenient way to sort the atom list (4/2001, 1.42).
613
614<DT>
615WWW links
616<DD>
617Implemented context-sensitive help that brings up web pages
618from local storage. (10/2000, 1.38)
619
620<DT>
621Error reporting
622<DD>
623When an invalid entry is specified, (for example 1..0 is typed, instead
624of 1.0) EXPGUI ignores the entry and (now) it is also displayed in red, to
625flag the error. This only happens for entries on the main panels. For
626entries on modal dialogs (where there a "done" or "keep" button), these
627errors will be reported only when the button is pressed. (10/2000, 1.38)
628
629<DT>
630Import Atoms/Import Phase
631<DD>
632A CIF import routine is now available. (10/2000, 1.38)
633
634<DT>
635"Non-shell" version of EXPGUI
636<DD>
637EXPGUI has two functions, 1) to act as a "shell" that calls the
638various GSAS programs, and 2) to edit the .EXP file. For use with
639MacGSAS (and possibly the standard Win-95 GSAS shell), it is possible
640to turn off the "shell" features -- by calling EXPGUI with the argument
641-noshell or /noshell or by setting environment variable EXPGUI_NOSHELL to 1.
642This mode has not yet been tested and is not expected to
643be needed due to the OS X release. (10/2000, 1.36)
644
645<DT>
646NIST accessibility requirement
647<DD>
648NIST requires that all images in WWW pages have an ALT= tag included.
649This has been done on all the documentation HTML pages, despite the
650fact that (in this case) it adds no new content for anyone.
651
652<DT>
653Change space group/Import from file
654<DD>
655A mechanism where one can specify a new space group, cell,
656and reinput all atoms for the phase (to get site syms correct). One can
657keep the old atoms for the phase or replace them. It is possible
658to do this manually or with a file import capability.
659At present the only file type accepted is
660the .CEL format from PowderCell. New format filters can be "dropped" in
661place. (8/2000, 1.33)
662

669<DT>
670Transform Atoms
671<DD>
672There is now a "xform atom(s)" button on the phase panel that
673can be used to transform coordinates,
674globally set the occupancy & Uiso and switch atoms between
675iso/aniso and erase selected groups of atoms
676(8/2000, 1.31)
677
678<DT>
679Delete phases
680<DD>
681Work around -- change phase flags on the histogram page (appears when 2+ phases
682present).
