Settings

From PyMOLWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

PyMOL is incredibly useful because of its flexibility. Almost any setting can be tweaked to give you the ability to make your scenes appear just as you want. Each command usually comes with one or more settings. For example, the ray command comes with 50 settings!


List of settings

Below you will find the list of all known settings (as of this writing). Settings are added all the time, so this list should be updated somehow. Also, see all documented settings.

If you feel like documenting them, and what they do, feel free.
