the same operation, which had been automatically applied to the first

1 A should be 1 A in every case (may be, after a special switch

independent manipulation (rotation, translation) like in RasMol2.7.2
would be nice
# it seemed that RasMol centered both independently, this is not good
# (but if you had arranged two molecules use the RasMol save command and
take the information from a center operation you may be able to restore
# now only the second molecule is active for rotation translation
# zooming applies to both
# rendering commands only to the second
# switch the target of space manipulation *and* rendering commands to
the first PDB
# the first gets rendered
set display selected
# there are *bugs* in the RasMol implementation the second seemed selected
# this should be made better
set display normal
# the ALA residues of the first PDB change rendering
# transformations apply to both rendering stays with first
# now rendering applies to second but transformation stays with *all* (both)
# now rendering *and* transformation applies to second PDB
# this should only center second on the current selection (I don't know
what RasMol does)
