EXPGUI Wish List
New Features In Progress, Planned, or Requested

See the EXPGUI documentation for a description of the current features.


Change space group
This will be implemented, along with an option to delete all atoms.
Import Atoms
The goal here will be to read in atoms and perhaps a unit cell and spacegroup from a some common file formats. I plan to use the .CEL format from PowderCell. CIF has also been requested.
Transform Atoms
I envision having a way to globally set values for groups of atoms, apply matrix transformations to coordinates, switch atoms between iso/aniso.
Fixed background
I do not like fixed background use, but agree that fixed points are useful for starting a fit. I would like to have a routine that fits a Chebeshev polynomial to a set of fixed points input by a user.
Define background types
I will look into a way to list the names of the functions in the GUI.

Brand New

Spherical Harmonic (ODF) Preferred Orientation
Delete phases
Instead -- change phase flags on the histogram page (appears when 2+ phases present).
