Dear Charles Chen,

I am not familiar with autoxds, only xds itself. The reported quality
of the anomalous signal is quite reliably and consistent with that of
other programs, although the resolution shells listed in CORRECT.LP
are a little broad, why I prefer to run xscale and take a look at
XSCALE.LP (which would also combine your data by the way).

I would recomment NOT to set FRIEDEL'S_LAW=FALSE in XDS, especially if
you only have weak anomalous signal. The small differences in the
Bijvoet pairs does not really affect the scaling, but the doubled
number of reflections gives you much more reliable scaling so that you
end up with a stronger anomalous signal with FRIEDEL'S_LAW=TRUE.
