You use menu File / Save PDB... to save coordinates of additional
monomers. I'm guessing you are using the Multiscale dialog. In that
case you should select the monomer surfaces you are interested in (ctrl
click and shift ctrl click to add others to the selection), then use
Multiscale dialog "Style Show... / Wire". This will make copies of the
monomer for those subunits. You can see the model numbers of those
copies in Model Panel (Favorites / Model Panel) and you can save them
with File / Save PDB....
