[Chimera-users] selection line-width

Hi everyone,
Two requests that would help with interactive demonstrations to large
In preferences/background, the selection mode can be "fill" or "outline". Is
it possible to add a line-width option for outline? I want to increase the
thickness of a selection outline to make it easier for my students to see
when I'm projecting an image, but I don't want to use the fill option and
lose residue color information.

I suspect that's an easy fix, but this one might be more difficult:
Transparent surfaces are very informative when combined with underlying
ribbons or stick representations of atoms. But if a residue is visible
beneath a transparent surface, selecting it (via the command line) does not
show the selection outline. Is it possible to make that work?
