[Chimera-users] substitute single residue

Dear all,

I was hoping to make some single amino acid substitutions in the  
context of a protein binding interface.  I've only briefly poked  
around, but so far the only way I see to do this is to delete  
existing atoms/bonds one by one, and then rebuild (the alternate  
amino acid) atom-by-atom/bond-by-bond.  Is there an easier way (like,  
telling the program to substitute an Asp for a Lys, or something akin  
to this)?  Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
