Re: TMD output format

Yes. You can apply TMD separately to multiple domains simultaneously in a simulation. This is useful, e.g., for creating restraints on internal intradomain motions while allowing interdomain flexibility.

So if I had two domains, there would be "Domain: 0" and "Domain: 1" output lines? And for clarification, the last value in this output format is still the currentRMS value?
