Hi Navya,

  If you have a 3-button mouse you move the atomic model with the middle
button.  If that is not working then you probably have the mouse modes
assigned differently.  You can look at and change what the mouse buttons
do with menu entry

    Features / Preferences

category Mouse.  Usually button 2 is assigned to translate in x and y
(second column of table).  It may not be assigned to that operation if
you have used other tools like volume path tracer or volume subregion
selection that reassign mouse button 2.
