Overview

These are display settings.

These settings set the style in which cartoon helices are rendered. The default is a helix with an ellipsoid cross section. Fancy mode helices are ribbons with tubular edges à la MolScript. Cylindicial mode renders helices as solid cylinders.

Syntax

To turn on Fancy Helices:

set cartoon_fancy_helices, 1

To turn on Cylindrical Helices:

set cartoon_cylindrical_helices, 1

To return to default helices:

set cartoon_fancy_helices, 0
set cartoon_cylindrical_helices, 0

Result

Fancy helix
Cylindrical helix
