You can show a viewdock model with the 'modeldisp' command, e.g.:

	modeldisp #0.5

modeldisp turns display of the entire model on without changing the  
display state of individual atoms, so that if you had undisplayed  
hydrogens previously for instance, hiding the model with ~modeldisp  
and then showing it with modeldisp would keep the hydrogens hidden.

With tonight's daily build you can activate a model for motion with

select 0.5

(and deactivate it with ~select).  Prior to tonight's build there was  
a problem parsing submodel numbers in the select command and you would  
have to use this kludgey alternative:

select 0.5-5
