[Chimera-users] D-Proline modeling in Chimera

I am using PyMol for modeling a peptide containing D-aminoacid 
(D-Proline) residue. I could invert the configuration arounf L-Proline 
to convert it to D-Proline. But, I want the "Phi" of the Proline to 
adopt a certain value. When i tried using the torsion command by 
selecting the bond N-CA of the D-Proline residue, there is no change at 
all. I want the Phi value to change from -60 deg to +60 deg and use this 
as the model for further analysis. Also, the "Psi" needs to fixed at 120 

Is it possible in any way to carry out the same steps and achieve the 
desired results in Chimera.

Any suggestions on how to carry out this would be highly appreciated.
