[Chimera-users] display of glycine atoms

Hello there -

I recently got a new office machine and had to reload Chimera. Although I do not recall the number of the version I had used in the past, empirically I can tell that this is some updated version. My problem is that I am trying to display various residues of a protein selectively as space-filling ("sphere") on a ribbon frame. One residue of interest is a glycine. This version of Chimera seems incapable (or I am incapable of discovering how!) of displaying the various atoms belonging to this glycine residue. All other residues seem fine. Is this a glitch? Am I doing something wrong? For comparison, I have every confidence that this should work because with my older version of the program I was able to generate just such a view.

Thank you very much in advance for the help,

P.S. By selecting the glycine of interest I am able to color the strip of ribbon by preset color, but not by element.
