Hi Paul,

You should be able to say simply,

load mystructure.pdb
echo "Blah blah blah"

although you can issue the echo before loading a structure as well.

Are you not seeing an echo appear?

You can place and format the echo with variations of the following commands:

set echo top center
font echo 14 sans bold
color echo white

There are many more choices for placing echos. You can find them in the Jmol scripting documentation and in the Jmol examples pages. Don't hesitate to ask again if these are not working the way you'd expect.

Friends,

I am new to scripting in Jmol, and I am having trouble echoing text. My
problem is where in my JavaScript should I set the echo command, as I want
it to load with the molecule itself.

Thanks,
Paul
