This document shows the use of MOLMOL in some examples. It is meant
to be used together with the manual (users guide). Each example will
first show a picture and give commented step by step instructions
on how it can be created.
The commands are listed with all arguments in the way they appear in
the log window and history. They can be entered on the command line in
this form, but this is not what you would normally do. Every command
can be activated from a pulldown menu, and the arguments can be
entered in the dialog box that will appear. If this is the preferred
way, it will be indicated with the notation
Menu->Submenu->Entry below the command. Frequently used
commands or combinations can also be activated from the buttons on the
right side of the window. This is indicated by Button:name.
Some actions are normally done with the mouse, this is indicated by

Dialog:name. The dialogs can be opened by clicking the
corresponding buttons (selection, style,
Whenever a command appears in the text, it can be used as link
to the corresponding online manual page.
All examples are based on the NMR structure of BPTI determined by
K. Berndt et al., this file is stored as data/1pit.pdb
in your MOLMOL distribution. The tutorial assumes that you start
the program from the directory that contains this file.
Note that menus, buttons etc. can be configured by the system
adminstrator or user. This tutorial assumes that the program is
in its default configuration.
