Hi Alex,

yes, that changed...
You should run again presurface as your .sh files (I call them .sha) are incompatible from shadow2 to shadow3

For doing that, use Tools->Shell Terminal with Shadow command. Then enter presurface and answer the questions.

You can also use from am xop macro:
(this will input the E2446_HDCM_8keV.dat file and output E2446_HDCM_8keV.sha)

alternatively, in the xop macro write
or simply:

Dear Manuel,

I have just created splines of surface deformation for a mirror and DCM in XOP 2.3 and discovered that a new version of ShadowVui does not like them. It does not give me any error messages but when I watch progress I can see the analysis does not go beyond the elements that have slope errors. I am sending you my workspace including the splines and the files used to create them.

I would very much appreciate your help.

Best wishes,
