Hello everyone, I'm converting multiple PDB files into ribbon models ('new
ribbons') and thereafter generating triangular meshes. I've scoured the
previous posts for this topic, but I can't find anything.

I get the following error when a ribbon isn't completely rendered:
"ERROR) Warning: ribbons code encountered an unusual structure, geometry
may not look as expected."

I'd love to know the residue ids for the residues NOT rendered. Basically I
want to know where the gaps are, but this information isn't an output. Is
there some command I can issue to get VMD to output more information about
each error?

Many thanks and happy holidays,
