Greetings experts,

I wish to know about the selection tool of VMD. I wish to make cylindrical
holes in a 30A thick square slab like structure of SiO2. I can select the
atoms corresponding the holes but don't know how to select the rest of the
atoms EXCEPT those atoms corresponding to the holes.

Is it possible to select atoms in such a way that all the atoms/residues
are selected in a molecule except one particular residues?

I'll be grateful for the suggestion.
