Ignore case chain

From PyMOLWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The ignore_case_chain setting (default: off) controls whether the chain and segi selection operators are case sensitive. The default is to be case sensitive, so "chain A" is different from "chain a".

New In PyMOL 1.8.2 (see ignore_case for previous versions)


The PDB structure 3tcx has 28 chains, including "A" and "a".
