Hi Elaine and Co.,

I am trying to color a virus map with the relevant pdb file, the
series of commands I am running are as follows,
open virus.mrc
open virus.pdb
color /A plum target c
color /B lightgreen target c
color /C dodger blue target c
color zone #1 near #2  dist 3
However, the resultant surface is rendered in splotches of red and
blue, which leads me to think the it is coloring the surface using
atom type. Could you tell me how I can get Chimera X to color the
surface using the colors of the chains only? FYI, color by zone works
flawlessly in chimera.
