I don't know if InflateGRO is even capable of dealing with ligands. Try the
workflow without it to make sure it works for a simple system of protein
and lipids. Then try again with the ligand included. If the latter fails,
then it's simply a limitation in InflateGRO. In that case, you'll have to
build the protein-lipid system completely and then figure out some way to
insert the ligand. Numbering should not be an issue at all; positions are
the problem here.
