Filtering Reflections

Allows the user to filter the reflections so that only the proper reflections are shown.

Fitting Gaussians to Profiles

Users can fit one or more Gaussian curves to a profile by either using only a few number of reflections or by using many reflections automatically.

Marking Symmetry Related Reflections

This function finds all the symmetry related reflections.
