[Chimera-users] Drawing H-bond

Hi Chimera users,

   Recently I¹m switching from my favorite molecular graphics software
³Pymol² to Chimera.
I find chimera very useful in terms of structural analysis and easy to drive
through the smooth command line.
I have a question regarding drawing H-bond in figures for publications: Is
there a way to instruct the program to draw a H-bond
Between two particular atoms in dotted (dashed) line style?

  I know that Œhbond¹ does a decent job in finding the H-bonds represented
by solid lines. However, in the cases I tried the H-bond network found by
Is a bit complicated and simplification is necessary for the figure. I
wonder if the user can have a control over which ³psudobond² to draw between
what atoms.
This would make the program very handy for me.
