Re: Constrained geometry optimization in DLC with many frozen atoms: how to freeze the atoms?

Dear Evgeniy,

you can try to lower ORTTOL in $ZMAT, see manual for details.
Yet I do not believe that use of DLCs with such a large number of
constrains is a good idea, at least with the current implementation
of DLCs in Firefly. I'd suggest you to use plain Cartesian coordinates
and freeze required coordinates using ifreez array in $statpt group.

All the best,
Alex
