[Chimera-users] Hide all ribbons not in specific chain

Hi everyone,

I want to display one chain from a structure, only.
However, I do not understand how to achieve that.

After my PDB file opens, I can do

select :*.A 
#select all residues in chain A that I want to have

select invert
#select everything else not in chain A


hides everything. How can I tell ~ribbon to hide everything not in chain A.
Or, how can I select everything not in chain A?

I am calling chimera through the socket and do not want to parse out every chain.

Thanks in advance,
