[Chimera-users] segment and group density together

Hi Yangqi,
See the Segment Map page

… under Methodology,  four kinds of grouping are listed:

	• automatic grouping by scale-space filtering (smoothing the data), done by default
	• interactive grouping by manual selection
	• interactive grouping by connectivity
	• interactive grouping using fitted molecules

You can follow the links to see more details on each.  Maybe by “one by one” you meant using the manual selection method.  As far as I know for that method, you would have to select them all, but if they are all in the same area of the screen you could try Ctrl-dragging a selection box rather than clicking one by one.  I haven’t tried that, however.

I hope this helps,
