Hi Eunice,
Not exactly, but if you can "select" a set of residues by any method, e.g. by Ctrl-click-dragging a box around them, or by distance zone from an atom or residue (first select the atom or residue, and then use menu Select... Zone...), then you can write a list of what is selected (menu Actions... Write List...).

Many different ways to select residues:

Actions menu including Write LIst

I hope this helps,
