Hi Ankush.

   There are many ways to easily select all 60 subunits of a virus.  1) 
Drag a box around the whole model with the ctrl key held (ie. drag 
select), or 2) select one subunit the press the up-arrow key on the 
keyboard, or 3) press the select All button in the Multiscale Models 
dialog, or 4) select one subunit and press the select "Up" button in the 
Multiscale Models dialog, or 5) use the typed command "select #1" (use 
Favorites / Command Line to type in commands, and Favorites / Model 
Panel to see model numbers).

   To move all commands back to their original positions use the "reset"
