[Chimera-users] Set interatomic distances

Hi George,
Sorry, there is nothing like that.  You would have to use some other program for satisfaction of multiple constraints/restraints.

With Chimera, it would probably be difficult depending on the number of constraints, but you could measure the various distances and then move one structure relative to the other; the distance values will update automatically.

I hope this helps,
