Transition dipole moments


Dear Aleksandr Aleksandrovich,

Could you please tell, in TDDFT calculation
dipole moments of the excited states μ_11,
μ_22 and so on (unrelaxed dipole moments) in the table
with the transition dipole moments , are written with
the reference to the ground state, or these are absolute values?

And another question, related to this topic.
In this thread in discussion on relaxed/unrelaxed density excited state properties

you mentioned, that it is possible to "calculate dipole moment as the derivative of energy wrt. to
electric field using runtyp=ffield. This quantity can be directly
compared with dipole moment calculated using relaxed density."
As I run the calculation, using
runtyp=ffield and specified

I can find only unrelaxed density dipole moment, but there is no relaxed density dipole moment.
Maybe I'm missing something very obvious, but I have no idea what could I miss.

Many thanks in advance.
