[Chimera-users] display multiple bonds

Hi Dave,
Currently there is no way to display multiple bonds.  In fact, in  
many cases Chimera does not figure out or "know" the bond orders, so  
even if there was a display method the information would not  
necessarily be right.  However, a future goal is for bonds to have  
associated bond orders (with some attempt to discern the correct ones  
if they are not specified in the input), which could be shown with  
bond labels ("1" "2" etc.), and perhaps a subsequent goal would be to  
use some other visual cue such as multiple lines for multiple bonds.
