Hi everyone,
Thanks for your help, using

open 1g1p
rainbow models
[ then I used the "Tile Structures" tool to spread the structures out ]
labelopt info molecule
la @/serialNumber=1

Worked perfectly!

Is there a way to change the font of the model number, it displays the
molecule as #0.1, etc but the font is incredibly small
