[Chimera-users] Undisplay pseudo bonds (missing segments) in pipes-and-planks representation?

Hi all, just wondering if there is an option I am missing to undisplay pseudobonds when using pipes-and-planks? 

At present chimera seems to represent missing segments in pipes-and-planks as a continuation of the chain rather than a break, which is a little confusing, e.g. check the following pair of snapshots (chain break in green section corresponds to missing 10aa loop):

Also in general it would be nice if cylindrical representations of helices were more integrated into chimera, perhaps with their own style adjustments (e.g. allowing for curved cylinders), as for large structures they provide much less visual clutter, but I guess that is probably something for Chimera 2.

Cheers, Oliver.
