[Chimera-users] Creating new models from existing crystal structures

I'm trying to join two models together using the Build Structure tool but I'm having problems. Here is my process.

  1.  Using the 3R2P crystal structure I select residues 3-130 from chain A and 131-182 from chain B
  2.  Then using the following command in Chimera I select the N atom of residue 130 that will form a bond with the C atom of residue 131: sel #0:130 at N#1:131 at C (#0 is the name of the 3-130 segment and #1 is the name of the 131-182 segment)
  3.  Then using the Build Structure tool I select Form C-N peptide bond, but the Apply button doesn't activate.

I don't understand what the issue is. Is the command that I've written wrong?

I would be very glad for your help. I can provide the pdb files of the residue segments if necessary.
