But watch out for large deviations from the orthorhombic symmetry. The
tolerance is controlled by the r_free_flags.lattice_symmetry_max_delta
parameter. The default is pretty generous (5 degrees) but you should
check that that's enough for your case.

You can use the
command with --delta=5 to verify that you get the orthorhombic
symmetry starting from your monoclinic cell.
