[Chimera-users] question

I have to admit that my understanding of the various commands to use for
very specific functions in Chimera is difficult for me to find the correct

I know how to color a specific residue using the sequence table and the
color chart.

So how do I color a specific atom in a residue. For example I am interested
in coloring the nitrogen of the Asn amide side chain say color red. How can
I do this?

When I highlight a residue and visualize it as a ball and stick, then color
it different from the color of the helix, the color of that part of the
helix changes to the color of the ball and stick, different from the color
of the rest of the helix.  

How can I reset the color of the helix location of that residue, leaving the
ball and stick as another color.

Thank you
