Hi Ramiro,

Like you, I would love to see secondary structure colored by helix type.  Jmol however does not show this as a default. Do you know what steps you took to get Jmol to show secondary structure colored by helix type?

I can't seem to find that setting in any of the menu options.

color/structure/cartoon/By Scheme/Secondary Structure

This shows all of the helices in the same color.

Hi and thanks for reading this.

I have googled for a way to achieve what I want and have gone through
the wiki, to no avail.

I would like to color in a different way the different helix types:
alpha, pi and 310. When you open, for instance, 1pyg into Jmol, you get
distinct colors for each type by default. But if the same pdb file is
open with PyMOL all helices are treated the same way. Can't PyMOL
distinguish helix types?

Thanks in advance,
