Hi Tom,

This works, thanks.  Although it seems to be a bit of a roundabout way of going about this ... :-/

Hi Markus,

  How about Chimera commands

            color byelement
            ~color element.C

The first line colors the carbons gray, and the second says to unset their color, which makes them default to the color set for each molecule.

I don't seem to be able to figure out how to color a scene by element, but with different carbon colors for different chains.

I can't figure out how to get an expression like

"color green, chain C C"

Or something like that ...

How to go about this?

Thanks and Cheers
