[Chimera-users] how to quickly delete several markers

There are always tricks! I use keyboard shortcuts to do this. You
have to turn on keyboard shortcuts to use them (menu Tools / General
Controls / Keyboard Shortcuts, then click Enable keyboard shortcuts).
The shortcuts are 2-key sequences (no return key) typed in the graphics
window and the relevant ones for your task are:
Da - deletes selected markers/atoms
sc - select all markers/atoms connected to the already
selected ones by links/bonds
So the typical use to delete a chain of markers is to select one with
the mouse then type sc, then
Da. The uppercase D is important. Upper case in shortcuts is used if
the action has serious irreversible consequences.
If you use the Chimera command-line that overrides the shortcuts. To
get back to using shortcuts use the Chimera command "ac" and press
return (that's a command not a shortcut, stands for accelerators).
Here's a full list of shortcuts.
Your mouse mode would be nice. We need better support for alternate
mouse modes in Chimera like a palette of modes as in paint programs.
