Thank you!
That works fine for me.

>>Dear Firefly users,
>>I've encountered a strange problem (never happened to me before). When scanning a dihedral, Firefly strongly distorts the structure given in an input that leads to a somehow different structure at the first optimization step. Sometimes Firefly even crashes due to too high rms gradient (not the case of the input below).I used all the keywords as I do it usually so I can't find any reasonable explanation for that. Here is my input:
