This is mainly a usability bug report/feature request

PyMOL>unset cartoon_highlight_color
Setting: cartoon_highlight_color set to white.

I know set cartoon_highlight_color, -1 does what I need, but that ain't as intuitive as unsetting something you've set.

    This isn't a bug it just requires legacy knowledge. When setting colors you can set by index, hex code, and name. And, when I do the following:

    set some_setting, on

    that will set integral settings to '1'. Likewise,

    unset some_setting

    will set that to '0'. Color index '0' is white. Color index '1' is black. It's legacy and confusing, but confusing. To unset the color, please type:

    set cartoon_highlight_color, default

    and that should clear up any problems.

    Thanks for reporting this.
