[Chimera-users] COX inhibitor demo discrepancy

Hi Simon,
You missed a step or two in the ViewDock tutorial.  You have to use the Columns menu to control what the dialog is showing.  See the paragraph in the tutorial starting “The docked compounds are enumerated…”

There are several options to the “roll” command including number of degrees per frame.  For a slower roll, you can set this to a low number, e.g. “roll y 0.1”.  Use command “help roll” to see the manual page, or view the copy at our website:
… it says the default is 1.5 degrees per frame.

If you already started a roll with inifinite frames, you can use “freeze” to halt it.

If you mean the COX demo credits, yes, I created that demo.  It is really a series of  Chimera commands to execute for each “panel."   Users can create their own demos, but it requires some familiarity with the commands.
