Moving atoms to the center of the simulation cell

Hi,
Is there a method to move atoms to the central position of the simulation cell using Ovito?
Thanks

Constanze Kalcher:
Hi,

yes, you can easily do that with the Affine Transformation modifier. Here's the corresponding manual page

Thanks,
I have already tried this feature but didn't work me.
Can you please outline the methodology?
I am attaching the jpg of the structure.
Can you please tell me how to move the atoms to the center of the simulation cell?

Constanze Kalcher:
Hi,

what did you have trouble with? It's only a translation that you apply on the particles. Don't forget to unselect the simulation cell.

computational:
While implementing affine transformation to particles, by changing the cell vector or the transformation matrix, I can see that the particle positions get squeezed rather than moving.
I hope you understood what I am trying to say.
I have attached figures to clarify.
Its been made sure that the simulation cell is unchecked.
Thanks.
