Next: Atom Selection
Up: Atom/Molecule Specific Popup Menu
As discussed in section §,
there are a number of attributes which
characterize the display of a given molecule on the screen. A few
of the most important properties which can be toggled on and off
with the MolStatus menu include:
- Top - makes the molecule to which the picked atom belongs to the
top one (a check mark indicates its status)
- Make Active/Make Inactive - several VMD commands operate on multiple
active molecules. Toggling this parameter will allow you to control
whether or not these actions are done to your molecule of interest.
- Fix/Free - Fixed molecules do not undergo rotation, translation,
or scaling. Free molecules do.
- Hide - Refrain from displaying the selected molecule
