  Your question doesn't really make it clear what you mean by
"saving the position". If you're loading a simulation trajectory,
the atomic coordinates of the structure are already "saved".
I'm assuming that what you want is to make a list of the trajectory frames
that meet some particular criteria, and then show those at a later time?
If you can provide more details and be more specific that would be helpful.

At the end I want to draw all molecules stored on top of the first frame to analyze the positions of each molecule. In there a way to store an entire molecule in a variable and draw it out later?
