[Chimera-users] Inter-molecular H-bonds between water molecules not displayed in per-frame script

Hi George,
Unfortunately the TIP4EW atoms are not recognized as H-bonding.  You would have to delete the 4th point and remove the H1-H2 bond for them to be recognized as such.  For example, commands:

del @epw
~bond @h1,h2

Then running FindHBond or its command works, at least for me.
I hope this helps,

After some investigation, I think this could be due to the fact that I'm using TIP4-EW water. Reason is that I got water-water hbonds working with TIP3 and after trying lots of permutations cannot get this going.
