No auto-optimization button "E" on menu

Dear all,

I installed a fresh version of Avogadro 2, however, the auto-optimization button “E” does not appear in the menu. I already installed Open Babel and even then it doesn’t appear. Can someone help me


Environment Information

Avogadro 2 doesn’t have an auto-optimize tool. (Once the new force field framework is created, it’s more likely to be a menu command… many users seemed to be confused that they could start the auto-optimize tool and switch to other tools… my guess is that will be less likely if they select an “Auto Optimize” menu command instead.)

Hey there, did u solved the problem?
have the same. Think it depends on Mate

Are you asking if we have an auto-optimize tool? No, see above. For now, use the “Optimize Geometry” command.

I would hope that the new optimization framework will be finished in late July or early August.
