To hide and show the whole model without changing individual atom/ribbon display (same as checking the Model Panel “S” box), use the “modeldisplay” command, for example:
It also works with surface models, but since a molecular surface generally has the same model number as the atomic model it was based on, it is tricky to specify it separately. Here is a somewhat ugly example of specifying only surface model #0 but not atomic model #0:
~modeldisp #0 & ~ @*
(hide model 0 but not any atoms). If you just used #0 it would hide both atomic model #0 and surface model #0.
I hope this helps,
