[Chimera-users] building and positioning disordered sequence

Dear Chimera Users,

i would like to do something in chimera, that is not exactly science but
more graphics :-)

i have a known structure with 5 positions that i know are crosslinking to a
100aa intrinsically disordered partner sequence.

now just in order to better imagine how the disordered binding partner
wraps around the structure, i would like to put 5 lysines in the open space
near the known crosslinking positions in the pdb structure, and than
somehow build the rest of the disordered partner sequence connecting those

its not about getting a estimate of the structural arrangement of the
its just so i can better imagine how the partner sequence extends around
the interacting residues (as the residues are not in a patch but really all
over the 100 aa) or if the arrangement would be sterically possible.

any ideas if and how i could achieve that in chimera ? i know that is sound
more like a task for illustrator, but :-)
