[phenixbb] Refinement of a b-Strand swapped into the sheet of the symmetry related copy

Hi Matthias,

You may try to specify H-bonds manually using custom bond restraints
mechanism which supports bonds over symmetry:
You will not get angle restraints around H-bonds in this case.

I believe the most straight-forward approach would be to take Bruno's
suggestion about expanding the molecule and apply NCS constraints to ensure
the copies stay identical.

Best regards,
Oleg Sobolev.
