#138 Atom selection with mouse

Rick Page

I installed PyMOL 1.6.0-1 via fink and found an issue when selecting atoms. Upon opening a pdb file I can select atoms with a left mouse click and center on atoms with a center mouse click. If I type in a selection, such as "select Cys, all and resn CYS" I get the correct selection. However, after making the selection command, if I go to click anywhere on the structure no selection is made. Atoms are no longer selected by left mouse click and I can no longer recenter on an atom with a center mouse click. I removed PyMOL 1.6.0-1 and reinstalled and the bug is no longer there. This appears to be an issue specific to 1.6.0

I am not sure if it is platform specific or not (I only have a mac). I am running Mac OS X 10.8.4 with XQuartz 2.7.4 and python 2.7 (installed via fink)

    Rick, I cannot reproduce this. Are you sure you were still in 3-Button-Viewing mode? Check the mouse mode table in the lower right corner.
