 A second cause is when you have a user defined prm in the input file that refines to a sufficiently small value that it gets rounded in the input file to 0.000000. ​ One way round this is to just scale the prm by e.g. *10^3 or *10^6 in the equations where it is used. A second cause is when you have a user defined prm in the input file that refines to a sufficiently small value that it gets rounded in the input file to 0.000000. ​ One way round this is to just scale the prm by e.g. *10^3 or *10^6 in the equations where it is used.
  
-If you start a refinement with unit cells a long way from correct values (e.g. 4.65 A when it should be 4.50 A) then the Rwp you get on convergence may not be identical to the value you get when you re-run the file.  In some cases the first Rwp can actually be lower than the value you get subsequently. ​ This happens as there are a number of quantities that topas only calculates at the start of a refinement. ​ For example, atomic scattering factors are 2-theta dependent and only calculated when a refinement is started. ​ if peaks move a lot then their values will be slightly incorrect at convergence. ​ In a normal Rietveld refinement these effects are minimal. ​ It is, however, best to run a refinement a couple of times to eliminate these issues. Similarly, peak shapes are also only calculated once and saved in the peaks buffer if they are not flagged to refine ; the peaks might need recalculating if peak positions move significantly. ​ The same occurs for some other aberrations.+If you start a refinement with unit cells a long way from correct values (e.g. 4.65 A when it should be 4.50 A) then the Rwp you get on convergence may not be identical to the value you get when you re-run the file.  In some cases the first Rwp can actually be lower than the value you get subsequently. ​ This happens as there are a number of quantities that topas only calculates at the start of a refinement. ​ For example, atomic scattering factors are 2-theta dependent and only calculated when a refinement is started. ​ if peaks move a lot then their values will be slightly incorrect at convergence. ​ In a normal Rietveld refinement these effects are minimal. ​ It is, however, best to run a refinement a couple of times to eliminate these issues.

 If this is an issue, then one work around is to change your input files to automatically do two convergences rather than one.  In topas v6 this can be done with: If this is an issue, then one work around is to change your input files to automatically do two convergences rather than one.  In topas v6 this can be done with:
