Hi Bradley,

The first argument is the setting, which is a string, and the second is the value for that setting, which is also a string, to be interpreted according to the setting. Actually, for sphere_scale it's also not size, but a multiplication factor to the size.

Hope it helps,

Hi all,

I have a question regarding the changing of sphere size in a PyMOL API. When I use the command as presented on the PyMOLwiki, namely:

cmd.set ("sphere_scale", size=1, selection='', state=0, updates=1, log=0, quiet=1)

I get an error saying 

set() got an unexpected keyword argument 'size'

I get the error wether 'size' is a string or an integer. What am I missing?
