[phenixbb] Low resolution structure

Hi Kendall,

by the way, we now have secondary structure restraint which is expected to be useful at low resolution refinement, and they are generated automatically. So now you don't need to do this tedious work manually.

Just discussed it with Ralf. Not sure you can do it currently. I guess the rigid body refinement will just stop is  it noticed an atom at special position within a rigid group.

Good luck!
