reinitialize reinitializes PyMOL. Issuing the command 'reinitialize' during a PyMOL session clears all objects and resets all parameters to defaults; this is equivalent to re-starting the program without having to actually do so.

  • NOTE: any unsaved work will be lost!
  • NOTE: Multi-CPU machines will sometimes lose SMP abilities in PyMol after running this command.
  • NOTE: settings that usually load with a .pymolrc file will also not work

Alternatively, this command can reset all settings to default values.


reinitialize [what [, object]]


  • what = string: everything|settings {default: everything}
  • object = string: object name for per object settings


Delete all
