[Chimera-users] Joining models question

Hi Kyle,
The following works for me:

I opened YFP and PcPs in that order, then:

disp @n,ca,c
sel #1:559.a at C #0:2.a at N

menu: Tools….Structure Editing… Build Structure, change to Join Models section of the resulting dialog.

Then I chose the “C-N peptide bond” option and clicked Apply, and the join appears to take place successfully.

However, I see your point that something weird is going on:  I repeated the process several times, and sometimes (but not always!!) if I didn’t change from ribbon to atom display, the Apply button was grayed out.  We should look into why that is happening.

I hope this helps,
