3 state delta f example doesn't work

On page 295, there is an example:

If you would like to evaluate delta f in its exact form (based on rho of three states), you can follow below steps:
examples\phenol-1.wfn // N+1 electron system
0 // Set custom operation
3 // Three files will be operated with the file that has been loaded
-,examples\phenol.wfn // N electron system
-,examples\phenol.wfn // N electron system
+,examples\phenol+1.wfn // N-1 electron system

However, when I try this using the 3.5 April 6, 2018 released version on Windows 7 Pro, I get an error message.  Here is the output:

I cannot get the "+" operator to work.  What do I need to do to get this to work properly?

Re: 3 state delta f example doesn't work

Dear jimkress,

It is a bug, thank you for reporting!
I have updated version 3.6(dev) on Multiwfn website to solve this problem, please update your version.

Best regards,
