[Chimera-users] Updating coordinates without having to regenerate the depiction of an atomic model

Hi Mike,
Take a look at the "mcopy" command -- I think that's what you want.  It doesn't handle all attributes, but you could copy depiction/colors from one model to another, or (opposite direction) the atomic coordinates.


I hope this helps,
