Thank you so much, Elaine and Greg.  I appreciate the fact that y'all 
are up and running even today (things are different at a community 
college :).

In my demo, I've found that rotating a model about to create a specific 
view in one panel, followed in the next panel by either changing the 
atom representation or recoloring the atoms, causes a resetting of the 
view to the opening orientation.  Is this a known issue?


ps. BTW, can a selected group of atoms be named at the command line?  
Another question I can't seem to find an answer to... :(
