Dear all,

As we all know, in vmd, we can rotate or translate molecule using “VMD MAIN
– Mouse –Rotate Mode/ Translate Mode”.

But can I measure the extent of rotation (in degree) or translation (in Ĺ)?

Please note, that these operations do not change any atom coordinates. They
simply change your viewpoint.


After modifying its location, is it possible to save molecule in pdb format?
