>> You are a lifesaver. Thank you very much, it all worked perfectly. Now I have a nice colourful ribbon structure protein with disulfide bonds. The middle of the bond is coloured in yellow, the rest of the sidechain is coloured in light grey. Can I change the colour of the grey sidechain without changing the colour of the AA in the ribbon structure? But it´s not that important.
>> I also created a movie of the rotating protein. (Command line: roll). Can I decrease the speed of the rotation?
