Scene buttons

= Overview =

This setting controls whether or not PyMOL displays Scene_buttons or openGL buttons in the lower left hand corner that allows interaction with scenes.



# turn on scene buttons
set scene_buttons, 1

# turn off scene buttons
set scene_buttons, 0


Once these are enabled you can interact with them by using the mouse:

  • left-button will select a scene
  • middle-button will rove over the scenes (to see this, load a bunch of scenes and then middle-click on the first and then drag down)
  • right-button will move a scene in the stack (drag-and-drop).
