Hi Nikolay,
	It's pretty easy.  Open the Attribute Calculator tool (in Structure Analysis).  Set the "Calculate attribute" field for atoms to "saveName" and the Formula field to "atom.name" and click Apply.  This will stash all the atom names in a "saveName" attribute so we can restore them later.  Then set the attribute to "name" and the formula to "atom.idatmType" and click Apply.  Now all the atom names have been changed to the IDATM type.  The display may change in response.  Now save your PDB file.  Then restore the original names by calculating attribute "name" with formula "atom.saveName".
