[Chimera-users] distance between 2 residues

Dear all,

I would like to know the (mean or approximative) distance between two 
residues within a protein (let's say Res 5 of chain A and Res 246 of 
chain C).

I suppose that I have to select one atom in each of the residues and use 
the Distance tool. I confess I have trouble to do so, either by picking 
in the viewport or by using the atom identifier. May you tell me a 
simple way to achieve such a distance?

Many thanks for your help
