[Chimera-users] Specifc silouhettes

Hi Max,

  I've wanted to show silhouette edges for just some models too.  Seemed simple to add to Chimera so I just now did it -- will be in tonight's Chimera daily builds.  By default silhouettes will be shown for all models when you turn silhouettes on.  But you can turn them off for specific models, for example for model #1 with

  setattr M silhouette false #1

or to turn it back on for model #3

  setattr M silhouette true #3

This uses the rather obscure "setattr" command that sets attributes of models.  You can alternatively use the Inspection Selector dialog (magnifying glass icon in lower right corner of Chimera window).  Select a model and change the "silhouette" setting for selected Molecule or Surface models.  The per-model silhouette edge setting is saved in sessions.
