msi2lmp tool - handling symmetry operations

Dear Users,

I need to build silica structures in Materials Studio and then convert them to Lammps input.
To learn how to use the msi2lmp tool, I ran it on the quartz.mdf and quartz.car example files provided in Materials studio.
I get the following message:

Msi2LMP is not equipped to handle symmetry operations

Does this mean it cannot convert any crystalline periodic structure? I was reading the LIMITATIONS in the readme file and it is not mentioned.
Can it deal with bonds across periodic boundaries?

Thank you!
Amanda

Dear Users,

‚Äčbut the readme file also says:

"""
‚ÄčThis code has several known limitations listed below under "LIMITATIONS"
(and possibly some unknown ones, too) and is no longer under active
development. Only the occasional bugfix is applied.
‚Äč"""‚Äč

‚Äčso obviously, you have come across a limitation that was until now unknown
‚Äčto the LAMMPS maintainers.

Can it deal with bonds across periodic boundaries?

‚Äčplease make a test.‚Äč
