Thanks kpwu. That's the secret! I did not know that I could do that!

Hello DMS,

I think you have to do 3 steps like:

select all_A, resn A
set cartoon_ring_color, red, all_A
color red, all_A

and then do other 3 groups in the same way.

It works for me to show different colors for different types of nucleotides while the color of "ring and bond" in "single" nucleotide is same.

Thank you Jason,

Actually this is exactly where I got stuck. With the commands below, each of the
bases is colored differently *except* the center of the ring, which is set to a
constant value (green in this case).  What I'm wanting is to have each base
appear as a single solid color.
