[Chimera-users] Linking two chains in a PDB file

Hi Sir/Madam

I have a PDB file of three proteins bound together (in one model). I would
like to fuse the N terminus of one protein to the C terminus of another
protein by adding a peptide linker between the termini. Is it possible to
do this using Chimera?

So far, I have built a linker and joined it to one of the termini, but
doing that combined the linker and all proteins in the file into one model.
Now, I can't connect the free end of the linker to the other
terminus because they are part of the same model. Any help would be much
