There are lots of different ways to specify or select the atoms you
want to color, far too many to list here, but here are a few ideas.
You can specify #model:residues.chain in commands, for example:
color violet red #0:355-486.A
color violet red #0:355-end.A
More details on command-line specification:
Or, if you don't know what the numbers are, you can select the
residues in the sequence window (Tools... Structure Analysis...
Sequence) by dragging with the mouse, and then use the Actions...
Color menu to color them.
Or, if it is just a few residues you want to color, you can Ctrl-click
on an atom to select it, Shift-Ctrl-click on another atom to add it to
the selection, press the keyboard up arrow key to "promote" the
selection from atoms up to whole residues, and then use the Actions...
I hope this helps,
