[Chimera-users] TER Cards and Rainbow Colors

Is there any way to introduce TER records between breaks in a chain,  
and still have N->C coloring continuous through a single chain?

I have for instance a structure with missing loops that were not  
observed in density. Therefore there are breaks in the main chain.  
This is a very common occurrence. To prevent spuriously long bonds I  
have introduced TER records between the breaks. Then when I apply  
rainbow coloring from N->C terminus I get the spectral coloring  
between TER records rather than from the beginning of the chain to  
the end.

I tried the card BREAK, but evidently that is not interpreted by  
Chimera. Coloring by chain, or by model in the Rainbow panel does not  
produce the desired effect.
