Hi,

Extracting/copying the ligand is one way (http://www.pymolwiki.org/index.php/Surface#Creating_a_Closed_Surface). You can also set surface mode (http://pymolwiki.org/index.php/Surface_mode) or flag a selection (http://www.pymolwiki.org/index.php/Flag).

Cheers,

Try to extract the ligand from the protein, so you get two separate objects.

I have a question I've never been able to figure out. If I have a pdb file with a ligand bound in a protein I can show the protein as a mesh or surface but I can't ever show the surface of the ligand. Any advice? What am I missing?

Thank you very much.

Yours &c.

John
