Dear All,

I'm trying to write a Pymol script with which produces a mixture of both solid and transparent sticks
I'm using the current 1.0 incentive release of MacPymol. After drawing all my sticks I issue following commands, but nothing changes although the log output suggests the change is being set.

PyMOL>set stick_transparency=0.2, /sca//A/228  and !mc
Setting: stick_transparency set for 5 atoms in object "mol1".

I'd also like to draw selected H-bonds with control of transparency
with the rest solid, but have no idea how to do this.
