Thanks to Ilyas and Francois! I have a further question on this issue. I
got the following charge constraints with R.E.D.II for a multi-orientation
calculation. According to my understanding, it means the sum of atom 1
from all molecule orientation is constrained to be zero. And so does to
atom 2 in all molecules, atom 3 in all molecules.... But this is nonsense
to me. Or does the charge constraint input have another definiation method
for multi-molecules? Thanks!
