Hi Bjørn,

Unfortunately your version of phenix.multi_crystal_average does not have a
keyword to enter arbitrary resolve commands. I just put it in however, so
if you download the next available version of phenix (probably tomorrow)
then you should be able to say

resolve_command_list= " 'my_resolve_command_1 value_1 '  \
    'my_resolve_command_2 value_2'  "

or whatever is necessary. Note the two sets of quotes if you specify it on
the command line. In a parameters file one set of quotes is used. There is
a little complication with this keyword in that it applies your commands
every time resolve is run, not just in the key density modification steps.

Let me know if this doesn't do what you need and I'll try to help. All the
