Ignore case

The ignore_case setting (default: on, except in PyMOL 1.8.0.0 - 1.8.0.4) controls whether PyMOL does case sensitive matching of atomic identifiers and selection operators in the selection language. Most notably, it affects whether chain identifiers are matched case sensitive, which becomes relevant when using upper and lower case chain identifiers in a structure with more than 26 chains.

The default value was changed to off in PyMOL 1.8.0.0. However, due to undesired side effects, the on default was restored in 1.8.0.5.

The next PyMOL version (expect 1.8.2) will introduce a new ignore_case_chain setting to address the issue of mixed case chain identifiers.

Example

Load 1a00 which has chains A, B, C, D

PyMOL>fetch 1a00, async=0

1) case insensitive selection language (default for PyMOL <= 1.7.6 and >= 1.8.0.5)

PyMOL>set ignore_case
