That seems to to allow for me to cook up a convergence test in terms of the 2 norm. What I’m really looking for is the ability to change things to be something like the 2 norm of the vector with elements
F_i/|x_i|
where I am looking for a root of F(x). I can just build that scaling into the form function, but is there a way to do it without rewriting that piece of the code?

What I’m finding is that where |Q| is small, the numerical phase errors tend to be larger. I suspect this is because it’s using the 2-norm for convergence in the SNES, so, where the solution is already, the phase errors are seen as small too. Is there a way to use something more like an infinity norm with SNES, to get more point wise control?
