I'm not sure about the side chain helper options, but you can always selectively show displays.
You could try something like:

show_as cartoon, object
show sticks, sele and not name N+C+O


show_as cartoon, object
show sticks, sele
hide sticks, name N+C+O

Either option should show the cartoon plus non-main chain atoms.

Hope that works,

Hi there,

I used the side chain helper option to create a binding site in the
protein. However I want include a glycine, which doesn't show up. Even
when I create an extra object with the glycine and an neighbouring
residue I didn't get the carbonyl oxygen atom of glycine and I don't
want to switch of the side chain helper function for all residues.
Is there a way to get that done without switching the helper function
completely off?

Thanks in advance for your help
