Thanks, both you and Elaine, for your reply
First of all, I had made the Action selections you outlined below.
Now, I hate to be so dense (although, after a lifetime of practice at
it, I think that I'm rather good at being dense), but how do I select
the particular residue that I want to label in 1qti so that I can cut
and paste the information. The reason that I want to label it in the
first place is so that I can identify the residue in the graphics
window. Certainly Select/Residue/Name lets me pick all of the serine
residues in the protein, but I only want one of them labeled.
I hope that I haven't made my question even more murky than it
Eagerly awaiting your further explanation.
Thanks in advance.
