User talk:Emily Forschler

From Proteopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Hi Emily, You have definitely suceeded in figuring out how to use the "user talk" feature. We were just delighted to find that you were able to use the authoring tools to create a wonderful page without so much as one email exchange between us! Of course I would encourage you to email/usertalk us with any questions, like your labelling question, but it was sort of a proof of useability to us that you experienced such a success. Could you identify any parts of the experience that were especially difficult to figure out?

As to the labelling, Jmol puts the same label on every atom that is selected instead of somehow just labelling that mass of atoms with one label. So, let's say you wanted to label a particular residue, what you would do is select just one atom of that residue and then apply the label. Usually the best way to do that is to use the "mouse click selects" feature present either in the "selections" tab or in the "labels" tab in the Scene Authoring Tools. By default your mouse clicks in Jmol do not affect the selection. If you choose one of the alternate modes in the "mouse click selects" box, for instance "atom", then you can start with nothing selected, and then just choose a single atom to add to your selection by clicking on it. Once your selection consists of only one atom, you can label it. Currently you cannot change the placement of the label, so if the label does not look good on one atom, try a different atom. Please do try to add a few labels to the Photosystem II page, my feeling is it will improve it greatly.

I like your idea for a reset feature in the Scene Authoring Tools, would you mind adding the suggestion to the Proteopedia:Wishlist page? We try to put all of the suggestions and desires for Proteopedia features/improvements there, along with the users that suggested them, and it's just an easier way to keep track of them.

We're very glad you're a part of Proteopedia, and look forward to any future pages you may create or improve!

Cheers, Eran

Hi Emily, The Photosystem II page that you've been working on has really progressed nicely! I think it's just great, and I'm sure that it will only continue to improve as you, and others, continue to refine the page. I noticed that several of the green links are far down the page, away from the 3D applet. This means that the 3D applet will not be in view when the user clicks on the final few green links. What do you think about adding another applet to the page to handle the 2nd half of the green links? In case you didn't know, green links will act on the applet directly above them in the wikitext (and if you want to pull some real fancy stuff, you can even go so far as to tell any green links to target any applet by adding some simple code).

Messiah College Newsletter

Hi Emily,

Just saw you mentioned in this Messiah College Newsletter. Nice! I take it you just graduated? What are your plans for the future?

Hello Eran-

Good thing I signed it to check in on Proteopedia. Dr. Sussman recently contacted me after having seen the same newsletter, so I figured I'd check for any messages. Thanks for sending me the PDF of the newsletter since I hadn't actually seen it (and the typo on my graduation year - I actually graduated in May 2008.) Since then, I have been attending a Master's program to be a physician assistant at Albany Medical College, in Albany, NY. I don't know that they have physician assistants in Israel, but they are popular here in the USA as mid-level health care providers. This link explains better than I could about what they do, especially the third paragraph. PA History I'm not sure what area of medicine I want to get into, but I'm thinking maybe Emergency Medicine right now. We have a year of rotations in a variety of areas, so I'm hoping something grabs my interest then.

Have you still been working much on Proteopedia or are you on to other projects? I hope everything is going well for you.


Not sure if I used the "user talk" feature correctly. Let me know if I done it correctly or if there is a better way to do it.

Hi Emily,

The best way to use the "user talk" feature is actually to write on my user talk page, which is linked via the signature of my name at the end of this message (I sign by typing ~~~~). Good luck in medicine! Check in on Proteopedia from time to time to see how we're doing.

Undo/Redo button in Scene Authoring Tools

Hi Emily,

A while back you suggested an undo button in the Scene Authoring Tools. You added it to the Proteopedia:Wishlist. I'm writing to let you know that that feature has been added to the Scene Authoring Tools!
