### Transform Molecule Coordinates

**Transform Molecule Coordinates** applies a rotation and translation
to a molecule model or
marker set.

There are several ways to start
**Transform Molecule Coordinates**, a tool in the **Movement** category.

The **Molecule** should be chosen from the list of open molecule models.
Its transformation is specified with:

**Euler angles [φ θ ψ]** - rotations
defined by the χ-convention,
where the first rotation is by an angle φ about the Z-axis,
the second is by an angle θ (potentially ranging from 0 to π)
about the new X-axis, and the third is by an angle ψ
about the new Z-axis.

**Shift [***X Y Z*] - translations along X, Y, and Z

Clicking **Apply** transforms the molecule model
using its local coordinate system.
