[Chimera-users] coloring labels-only

Hi Maria,
The label colors will follow the atom colors unless you specify coloring the labels only.

(A) if commands:  use the "color" command, with ",l" after the color name, where the last character is a lowercase letter L to indicate labels only.  For example:

color  red,l

…for all labels, or to color only the labels of specific atoms, you can specify those atoms at the end, for example:

color red,l  ligand

If menu, use Actions… Color… all options to show the color-actions dialog.  Then in that dialog change "Coloring applies to" to one of the label choices.  Then select the atoms or residues that have the labels with colors you want to change, then click a color in the color-actions dialog or the Actions… Color menu.  (then you would probably change "Coloring applies to" back to "all of the above" to avoid later confusion)

I hope this helps,
