when reporting this kind of problem, please _always_ state what

in many cases this has a significant impact on the answer we can give.

you have to _first_ select the filename and then VMD will
try to guess the file type and _then_, if you do not agree,
you may change the type. if VMD cannot guess it defaults
to automatic.

no. VMD should actually guess the right file type right, if it
ends in either .srf or, .grasp
