Dear Pymol users,
I would like to modify a protein pdb file with a "crankshaft" flip, which is the anti-correlated double change: psi(i-1) += delta and phi(i) -= delta. Such a change should leave the protein coordinates unchanged effecting only atoms in residues i-1 and i. However implementation in pymol (see below) changes the coordinates of _all_ residues from i-1 to the C-terminal. Can you help me? Can I somehow do the two changes simultanious?...
