I am trying to use the "molecular_geometry_report" from the Scripts menu within Mercury and run into problems:

Python reported 1 or more errors, output was as follows
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:/Program Files (x86)/CCDC/CSD_2016/mercury 3.7/scripts/molecular_geometry_report.py", line 17, in <module>
import matplotlib.pyplot as plot
ImportError: No module named matplotlib.pyplot

It looks like this is because matplotlib is not installed on my pc. Could you advise from where I should download this and which version?

Hi Louisa,

It should be as simple as typing in a console window:

    pip install matplotlib

There are other installation options described at http://matplotlib.org/users/installing.html 

Any of the recent versions should work. I'd suggest 1.5.0 is as good a choice as any.
