[Chimera-users] Pipes and planks representation

Dear chimera developers,

I have noticed that in the last Chimera releases you have significantly
improved the 'pipes and planks' representation. I find it particularly
useful because, in my opinion, it makes the structures look simpler and
clearer, especially when you are displaying large PDBs.

I would like to suggest an improvement. It would be really useful if you
could make that representation an attribute of the structure (like the
'ribbons' one) instead of a separate object. That way one
could easily show, hide or color different regions of the structure without
having to modify the actual PDB file.

Thank you very much for your help, and congratulations for your great work.
