The Label command controls how PyMOL draws text labels for PyMOL objects.


Labeling is important so there are many options for your fine tuning needs. You can change the label size, label color, positioning, font, the label outline color that masks the font and much, much more.

You can have PyMOL label atoms by properties or arbitrary strings as you want; you can even use Unicode fonts for special symbols like, , etc.

The following gallery shows some examples of how extensible the Label command is. <gallery heights="180px" widths="200px" align="center" perrow="3"> Image:Label_pre.png|Simple label Image:New_fonts.jpeg|Example showing usage of Unicode fonts for special characters, see label_font_id.
