Make sure you are using the latest version of it, because some of the
centered lattices have been adospted and old version of xcrysden will
not be syncronised with pwscf.

Regards, Tone

PS: recently there have been several emails on this forum about the centered lattices, and 
according to my understanding, the source of trouble is the choice of the lattice vectors, 
which as pointed out by Paolo yesterday is not unique. If one has data corresponding to the 
choice that is different to that used in the pwscf, the solution is a pencil + sheet-of-paper: 
one has to draw the two settings of the crystal axis so as to understand what to "swap".
