Yes, this is possible -- but the only way I current know is to run the
executable from the command line:


I recommend create a small script to do this:

/Applications/MacPyMOL.app/Contents/MacOS/PyMOL $*

which I then save as:


Obviously, MacPyMOL needs to be in your applications folder in order to do

If you are using the unrestricted native version (with no menus), then
simply replace MacPyMOL with PyMOL in the above -- but MacPyMOL is far
superior... http://delsci.com/macpymol
