Post subject:  Turning normalization off

Hello, I have a problem. I propagate DM electrons and positrons (with no other CR sources). I am interested in resulting spectra observed near Sun location and in gamma-rays spectra from bremss, synchrotron and IC. I need to know amount of particles and gamma rays as well as form of spectra, so I turned off normalization (electron_norm_flux = 0).
But several simple tests have shown it didn't work. If I increase source function two times, I obtain the same spectra, and gamma_ray fluxes for positrons+electrons vs electrons only cases are the same.
I tried to find normalization in source code. I don't understand where should I see. Please help.

Thanks in advance.

I've found what was wrong. I parse resulting FITS files myself using Mathematica, so it can import "Data" from fits file, or "RawData". "Data", as i see, is allways normalized as maximum value is 1.0. RawData is provided as-is.
Sorry for your attention.

anyway the parameter is electron_norm_type, set to 0 for no normalization. See page 27.
not electron_norm_flux as you wrote. But not yet implemented in v54 http://sourceforge.net/projects/galprop unfortunately, will do if required.
