You can used "named selections" to give a short name to several models
or to any combination of selected items. Use menu entry
Select / Name Selection...
You can use the names in Chimera commands or use the "Select / Named
Selection / name" menu entry. I don't know of a command to name a
selection. Is there such a command (other Chimera developers)?
You can set the model number if you open your models with a command,
open 5 twisty.pdb
to open a model as model number 5. After the model number has been
assigned it unfortunately cannot be changed.
