Thanks that works fine apart from one thing: I wish to display lines between 97AOE1 and MN in two overlapped structures, with identical chain identification, in two different colours. Using the below command draws two lines in the same colour. Is there a way a specifying a line between the two below atoms only within a specific pdb file (defined as an object).
eg line between A97OE1 and MN only within object e4_final.
