When I use the command 'measure rotation' I get a matrix in the reply log.
1) The fourth column is 'translation'. At most the translation I see is
5 Angstrom, so how do I get these numbers (see below)? I also have a
shift along axis reported, which seems a more reasonable number, but
what if the shift is in a a different vector to the axis?
2) I can get depiction of the rotation axis, but can I also get a
depiction of the translation vector?
Position of model2 (#20) relative to model1.pdb (#1) coordinates:
