I have two questions regarding using Chimera.
How do you break a molecule to different models using the command line?
I have a protein composed of 4 chains. It loads as one piece and
designated model 0
I then select a single chain and I want to designate it as a new model.
How do I do that using the command line (so I can write a script)?
Also, when I select the chain and use the write command in this manner
"write selected su1.pdb" the save dialog box pops up (even though I
designated a filename)
When I try "write selected 0 su1.pdb" nothing happens.
My other question is:
How can you force chimera to assign secondary type display to residues
without editing the PDB file first?
Say I want to show 30 residues that are not detected by ksdssp as beta
sheets. Still, I want to represent them as beta sheets. Do I need to
edit the pdb file?
