Thanks for the tips but not successful. I checked some of the help sections,
like  select and atom specifier, and tried the command below

Bond sel :88A at SG:96B at CA

Msg received

Mangled atom specifier!

I tried the suggestion of using the Tools menu, but not evident how to do

Is there a way to select more than one atom using cntrl and the mouse arrow.

Hi Arthur,
If you just mean to draw a bond and not move anything, if the atoms are
already selected you could just use command:  bond sel

There is also a graphical interface, Tools. Structure Editing. Build
Structure, the Adjust Bonds section.

I hope this helps,

through the various tutorials, functions and tools to figure out how to
actually place a bond between two residues that link the two chains. It is
well established as to how the two proteins would be linked if the bond had
been formed.
