Hello vmd community.,

Is it possible to draw a graphic, e.g. a cylinder, that stays all the time above the structure that is displayed.

Here is an example of what is happening :

I have two molecules loaded in the VMD interface.
Molecule 1: any protein
Molecule 2: a cylinder or the type of graphic.

The problem is that every time I move molecule 1 (the protein), the atoms it get above the cylinder that is in the molecule 2.

Is there any way to get this working ?

Thanks for the help.
