Hi Toni,

I think the variable you want to set is "cartoon_transparency" not "transparency".  The way I figured this out was through the menu->settings->Edit All... dialog box.

Hello!

I'm trying to show some aminoacids transparent in a cartoon view. I
use the command cmd.set("transparency", "0.8" ,"(resi " + values[0] +
":" + values[1] + ")").

When i see the cartoon view, happens nothing, but if I use "show
surface" the transparency is shown. Do you know how to do it in the
cartoon view?

Thanks!

Toni
