I recommend that you not modify Fobs at all, but rather apply the
correction to Fcalc during refinement.  This has a number of advantages,
including that it can simply be inserted as a step in your normal
refinement protocol (since it makes no changes to any of your data files).  
Instructions and a sample script (anisob.inp) for doing this may be found at
