I'm not sure this is possible in an easy way. But also, I doubt it is
needed, why do you want to do this? As Felipe mentioned, you can always
recenter the periodic box around your complex later, since the wrapping or
not wrapping is just a visual thing. If, for instance, you want to measure
some kind of distance between receptor and ligand, you can recenter
afterwards, or you could use the collective variables module to keep track
of things, as it will by default use the shortest path between things.
