I guess you mean you just want to show a solid line or a stick?
The dotted line is a "pseudobond" and this recent chimera-users
message describes how you could change its appearance or hide it:
Two approaches were mentioned in that message.
(a) the Selection Inspector approach allows an individual selected
pseudobond to be hidden or changed to stick
(b) the Pseudobond Panel approach allows the attributes of the whole
group (usually all the pseudobonds to one metal ion) to be changed at
once. attributes include whether the line is dashed or not, the line
If you really care that it is considered a bond and not a pseudobond,
you could hide the pseudobond (or close its group in the Pseudobond
Panel), select the 2 atoms, and then use the command
I hope this helps,
