Dear Bala,
Here are the ways you can change the model ballscale and stickscale now:

(a) setattr command, for example:

setattr m stickScale 1.8 #1
setattr m ballScale 0.4


(b) molecule model attributes panel.  Open Model Panel, choose model(s) on left side, choose "attributes..." on the right side.   Also, by default, just double-clicking the model name on the left side of the Model Panel will open its attributes panel.


I hope this helps,

I would like to request you for the addition the Stick and Ball size settings in the Atoms/Bonds menu. Because when i change the stick/Ball size from preference-New molecules option. I am not able to see the change for the molecule presently loaded in Chimera. It would be of great help to have this option in Atoms/Bonds menu itself.
