[Chimera-users] Joining models

Hi Jing,
I was not able to reproduce the problem.  When I chose “N side” the side with the N atom selected moved, and when I chose “C side” the side with the C atom selected moved.

If the ligand is in the same model as the part it is bound to, they should move together. 

In general when you have data-specific issues you should include your data, or else we cannot suggest any specific solution.  If you think it is a bug, you should use menu: Help.. Report a Bug and attach any data (such as a Chimera session of the models before the joining) that is needed to reproduce the problem.
