Command: rename

Usage:
rename  model-specnew-name ] [ id new-id ]

The command rename changes the name of the specified model(s) to new-name and/or changes model ID number to new-id (if a single model is specified and no other model already has new-id) or submodels of new-id (if multiple models are specified or new-id is already “taken”). The new-name should precede the id option if both are given, and if new-name includes spaces, it should be enclosed in quotes. If only the name is changed, the Model Panel will not show the change until its display is updated by some other action such as opening or closing a model or clicking a checkbox. See also: open

Examples:

rename #1 mutant4
rename #5 id #3
rename #8 "closed conformation" id #5
