Hi folks,

we often use Pymol to visualize SD files overlayed on protein structures usually coming out of docking and other VS runs. I've noticed that when using the seq_view window, some SD files which have the names of individual ligands at the very top of each record in the SDF have these names usefully displayed in seq_view, but if the names are in a <name> field, they don't displayed, we just get '' '' type entries for each ligand. Whilst I understand that seq-view is primarily for looking at and manipulating portions of the protein sequence, is there some way to view the name fields in Pymol? 
e.g. the following type of entry would have ZINC09999999_0 displayed in the seq_view window:

but the following would just display " or sometimes UNK
