Hi Alex,

We'll look into making this faster/smarter. To let you know, whenever you move an atom, it deforms the surface and causes a recalculation. The bigger your structure and higher quality the surface the longer this takes.

Hi All,

This isn't really a problem per se, I'm just wondering. Is there any way to more efficiently code the rotation protocol when the items being viewed are in surface view? Maybe my computer isn't fast/strong enough or something, but it seems whenever I try tweaking the position of one subunits in relation to other subunits while everything is in surface view, two redraws occur, and it's difficult for me to adjust with precision because there's so much latency between positionings. Just a thought. again, it's not really much of an issue, because I can just retoggle a new view or something as a workaround, but it seems like manipulations while in surface view can get a little GPU/CPU intensive. Are the redraws necessary?
