Click to the Interpretation tab and select "Guess, Def, Set" in the
middle pane. YOu should see all the variables that are defined. My guess
is that you have "dr" instead of something like "delr". Change the name
to "delr" and then click on the individual paths and change any occurence
of "dr" to "delr".
If you are working on Scott's example for ZnO, I am not sure how you got
"dr" as he uses "delr" in evrything as far as I recall. In fact, I just
looked at the tutorial myself and if I follow all the instructions, I get
the following variables in the "Guess, Def, Set"
note that Scott's instructions are for an older version of Artemis and
there is not menu entry for loading a FEFF calculation, instead you need
to Open File, go into the FEFF subdirectory and select "feff.inp".
Artemis is smart enough to know that this is a calculation and asks how
many paths to import.
hope this helps,
