[Pw_forum] Finite Electric field

Hi, I used Gaussian code to apply a finite electric field to a molecule, now
I'm trying to do the same with a periodic system with PWscf. I found in
PWscf manual the 'lelfield' amd 'gdir' variables and I understood that I can
define the direction of the field to be only the axis direction on
reciprocal lattice. Is there any way to define the electric field direction
with components of a*, b* and c*? In another words, a diagonal electric
field through the cell?

Thank you very much.
