[Chimera-users] New molecule from selection?

Hi,

This may already be implemented, but I couldn’t find it - the nearest equivalent feature I know of is copy/combine, but that only works on whole models, not taking into account selections.

I was wondering if it would be possible to implement a feature creating a new model comprised of all atoms in the current selection? This would be particularly helpful when combining many parts of multiple models, or when creating a separate model consisting of a subselection of the current model.

This can be done at present using a combination of copy/combine and selecting and deleting those parts of the copied molecules that are not in the selection, but this gets messy for complicated selections.

Best,
Oliver.
