Hi all,

If you open a c-alpha pdb (3ixz for example) in PyMol, you can show the c-alphas as spheres, or you can show a cartoon as a tube (ribbon like) but you can make a traditional flat faced PyMol cartoon. Yet when you open the same pdb in JMol it shows the traditional PyMol cartoon as the default. :P

Why can't PyMol show the traditional cartoon like JMol does? and if JMol is faking the traditional cartoon, why can't we get PyMol to also fake the traditional cartoon? :)

Thanks for any insight.
