Well ill be d......! The .pse file you send me shows the loops just fine. Im still puzzled as to why PyMol 0.98 on win2000 fails to show those loops but now I can just use your .pse file as a template and work my way around it. Ill also try upgrading as Warren suggest. Anyways, thanks a lot for the help, it is greatly appreciated!
 
Cheers
kasper

Hi again,

Hmmm had a look and it looks fine to me. I'm assuming you're looking at
chain H. See if you can open this pse file which is displaying the
cartoon. The only strange thing is that there is no residue 218. sorry I
can't be of any more help. might be worth sending Warren/me a pse of the
problem?

See ya

J

PS thats a windows pse file and should work
