Items in Chimera such as atoms, bonds, residues, and models
have attributes: properties with
names and values
The Selection Inspector
provides access to attributes
of items that are selected.
The Model Panel lists models
of various types. Once a model has been chosen in the left
side of the Model Panel, clicking
the attributes... button in the right side brings up
an attribute inspector:
Similarly, the PseudoBond Panel
lists pseudobond groups.
Once a group has been chosen in the left side of the
PseudoBond Panel, clicking the
attributes... button on the right side brings up an attribute inspector:
Descriptions in the inspector dialogs are not necessarily identical to the
attribute names used in
commands such as setattr,
but for most attributes, placing the mouse cursor over the description
shows the attribute name and other information in balloon help.
