Renaming selection buttons

We need a clear and consistent naming for the buttons in the selection pannel. These are the names and actions of the current and proposed additional button, combined with the (constraints) above the buttons:

Clears current selection and selects (constraints)
Adds (constraints) to selection
Removes (constraints) from selection
or This is a new button. What's the unique action??

How about "reduce selection"? I think the "to" is not good since the new selection has already been chosen, it will not be chosen after pressing the button. --Angel_Herraez 08:34, 29 October 2020 (UTC)

Action: Changes the selection to just the (constraints) that were also in the previous selection. Example please, it looks to me identical to "replace selection", unless you clear the tab in between.


We selected atoms in the neighborhood of myoglobin's iron atom. The selection includes the heme, the iron, and different protein residues. In the selection box, we choose Residue type: His.

all histidines selected

all histidines selected, plus the neighbors of iron

neighbors of iron selected, except for histidines

just the histidines that are neighbors of the iron, nothing else

More tools in "representations" tab

  • Add clear form to uncheck all check boxes (next to hide selection button?) Done Jaime Prilusky 04:15, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Combine the following items in a new area between the two existing ones: center selected atoms center visible atoms zshade on/off and the existing slab from above.

Suggestions for under the Jmol panel

  • Display updated number of selected atoms on SAT. Done Jaime Prilusky 04:15, 29 October 2020 (UTC)

Either: number of atoms selected _______ Or: after "Show Selected with Halos", just show the number in parentheses as done in the Jmol right-click menu Suggestion: "___ atoms currently selected", right after "Select Atoms ALL NONE" or inside the box under "currently loaded file" --Angel_Herraez 13:39, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

Karsten's comments

Thanks for posting this here, Angel. I vote for removing the Nucleic residues from the group selections because it is redundant. We could consolidate the "protein" and the "amino acid properties" into a single category. I did not do this because then the next category is not visible at first glance. --Karsten Theis 13:04, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
