Dipole moment calculation

Hello,

I would like to know how Avogadro calculates the dipole moment of molecule when I optimise the moelcule geometry by UFF (where no eletron distribution is taken into account).
Thank you!

By default, Avogadro uses Gasteiger partial charges to calculate dipole moments unless the dipole moment is read in from an quantum chemical output file.
