[Chimera-users] molecular surface isolated to chain

I am trying to create a nice aesthetic model of a protein binding to DNA.
When I show molecular surface, the program doesn't seem to be able to
differentiate between the DNA chain and the protein chain. I either end up
with a surface on the DNA which is not fully closed, or if I extend the
surface via the 'surface zone' it simply begins to cover the protein as
well... I have consulted the documentation and can not find any description
of how one would isolate the molecular surface to a particular chain. Is
this not possible in Chimera?
