apparent error in DCDFT default lower frequency scan limit

Manual version 2.20.2 at the top of page 71 states that the default lower limit for a DCDFT frequency scan is 1/(4T). I assume these defaults are also the values that appear in the DCDFT with frequency range for a newly opened file (so that previously selected values have not been retained). However, the program is actually using 1/(2.6666...67T) = 1/(8T/3) as the default. This apparent contradiction is was also in  from earlier manual versions. 

Another minor point: It would be clearer to use normal in-line text such as 1/(4T) for the fractions in this section  of the manual rather than what appears to be pasted images combined with normal text. 

Try the attached two files and you should get a value for default lower limit that is 1/(2.66...67*1000) = 0.000375 instead of  1/4000 = 0.00025.

Cheers!

Thanks Brad.

You reported this last year and I created a ticket:

  https://sourceforge.net/p/vstar/bugs-and-features/586/

I've added a link to this page as well.

There's also this which may actually be a duplicate:

  https://sourceforge.net/p/vstar/bugs-and-features/576/

Probably should consolidate the tickets.

Apologies for not getting to it yet.

David
