center translates the window, the clipping slab, and the origin to a point centered within the atom selection.

PYMOL API

cmd.center( string selection, int state = 0, int origin = 1 )

NOTES

  • state = 0 (default) use all coordinate states
  • state = -1 use only coordinates for the current state
  • state > 0 use coordinates for a specific state
  • origin = 1 (default) move the origin
  • origin = 0 leave the origin unchanged

User Example

  • Center around any given point
# define the point as x=1.0, y=2.0, z=3.0; replace [1.0, 2.0, 3.0] with your coordinate.
origin position=[1.0,2.0,3.0]
# center on it
center origin
