Hi PyMol users,

I'm new to pymol and was wondering if there was a way of creating temporary atoms that can be used to create distance objects? Or if there was a way of creating distance objects between two positions in space without creating a temporary atom? I'm writing a function file and this file is measuring distances between groups or sets of atoms and a distance object would make it much easier for a user to see where the group distances are measured from. Since I'm writing the function in python a command written way of producing this distance object is necessary and is much appreciated.
