Now that we're here... Is it possible to pick just one atom and show the distances of surrounding atoms within a certain radius. I'm not talking about zone selection, just showing distances (as the usual pseudo-bonds) up to a fixed or user-defined radius. If the possibility does not exist, it would be nice to have.
