Hi Giulia,
Unfortunately I don't know of a way to do that either, but here is way to make the other surface "win" the display:

- start Model Panel (under Favorites in menu)
- in Model Panel, close (delete)  the  currently "winning" surface
- re-create that surface

For example, I used the following commands to open 2 copies of 1gcn and show surfaces on both:

open 1gcn
open 1gcn
surf

I can tell the #0 surface is winning because it is tan (#1 is light blue).  Using Model Panel, I closed surface #0.  Then I re-created surface #0 with command:

surf #0

Now surface #1 is winning because it is light blue. 

It is necessary to actually close (delete) the first surface #0 because simply hiding and reshowing (~surf #0; surf #0) will not reverse the "winning" display.
I hope this helps,
Elaine
