Dear Chimera developers

You have createdt an absolutely brilliant program.

I have a small question/suggestion about displaying atoms and ribbons
simultaneously. When displaying a number of backbone atoms and then
putting on a ribbon, then some of the atoms dissapear in release 1700 and
onwards. Is there a way to avoid this behaviour? 

It basically means that I am stuck with the pre-1700 version, but maybe
there is some parameter I can tweak to make it work in the new versions? I
would be grateful for your help. I reproted this as a bug some 6 months
ago, but was told that it was supposed to be like this.

I measure experimental values for selected backbone atoms and display 
them as colorcoded spheres on top of a ribbon to indicate what is measured 
different places in the structure. If you have suggestions to acieve this 
behaviour in another way I would be grateful.

Thank you in anticipation,
