[Chimera-users] Fwd: distance between 2 residues

As explain in the Chimera user guide, I used the command such like
distance #0.2:246 at N#0.5:131 at N to measure the distance between two atoms
To be more explicit regarding my first email, it was necessary to
re-edit the pdb file and to assign a model number to each chain. In the
example above, the chain B is named model 2 (then model 0.2 in Chimera)
and the chain D is named model 5 (then model 0.5 in Chimera).
It works fine but I suppose that there is a simpler and more direct way
to specify the chain in the command?

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
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
