Dear Xiao-Ping,

set defaultLoadScript "trace only"

(but there are much nicer ways to view a structure!)

Basically you can do anything in Jmol you ever imagined doing in RasMol and a few thousand more possibilities.

Lots of examples for how this has been used. Here's a relatively simple page:

Hi, jmol-users,

Previously I used rasmol as a web-browser application to open pdb files.
Somehow, when rasmol is open from firefox, it uses 100+ACU power of a
single core CPU/or a core of a multi-core CPU. I decided to use a new
pdb viewer for this purpose. I tried jmol, a very nice tool. But I would
like to show the structure in trace format. Current default is in
ball-stick format. I have to do the changes: style -+AD4 structures -+AD4
trace, or style -+AD4 scheme -+AD4 trace). What is the procedure to store this
setting changes as a default?  Or how to change the current default

Is there any complete JMOL user guide or manual freely available?

Thank you for your help.
