Hello, I have a zigzag germanene nanoribbon device and am able to calculate LDOS and PDOS in the transport (z) direction (results attached), but I am interested in the LDOS in the perpendicular (x) direction to show evidence of the quantum spin hall effect. However the LDOS calculations seem to automatically choose the transport direction and I can't figure out how to change that. Is it possible to do so in ATK? Any assistance is greatly appreciated, thank you

Latest version(S2021.06) can select the direction (a, b, c) in the local density of state analyzer. I recommend to upgrade your version.
