[Chimera-users] Question about connectivity

I have just begun using Chimera on my Mac, and find that it will be
able to produce the graphics that I need for publication and display
purposes. I recently opened a pdb file of a protein that we study
bound to DNA and used the depiction, nucleotides tool to render the
DNA backbone as ribbons with the bases shown as slabs. I noticed a
discontinuity in one of the DNA strands, which may be caused by the
severe distortion of the DNA. I think that this also happened with a
previous program that I used called SPOCK that I used to draw the DNA
strands as worms. In that case I could repair the break by changing
the settings for the connectivity distances. How would I repair the
break in Chimera?
Thanks for your help.
