[gmx-users] bilayer thickness 100ns membrane protein

I have pinpointed the problem I have.
I tried to follow
But I only used pbc whole, nojump and mol center.
After I used nojump, the thickness values of my trajectory is stable at
around 40. After I use -pbc mol - center, the strange value jumps are
I want to know if it is okay to just leave off the mol center?
Hope you can help. Thank you!
