Dear Samman,
I don’t see a problem except that you need to enter a file name.

If you want multiple files, just like the dialog says, enter something for “File name” which contains $name or $number.

For example, in “File name” enter exactly this: $number.pdb

Then you will get 0.pdb, 1.pdb, 2.pdb …

Or, if you want everything in one file, change the “Save multiple models” option near the bottom to “a single file” and again, enter a file name, except it doesn’t need to include $name or $number because you are only saving one file.


I hope this helps,
Elaine C. Meng, Ph.D.
