Hi Rabab,
  The released production versions of VMD aren't able to render
cyclic structures quite correctly. I have an experimental build
of VMD that handles cyclic structures that you can try out if you
like, but I'm still working on perfecting this code and integrating
it into the main source tree. It's not quite done yet. Let me know
if you want to try it out.

Is there a way to do this right, especially when I noticed that from the archives it is tricky using VMD with circular proteins.
