I think the solution is to create a copy of the object, then render one
copy as cartoon, and the other as sticks. The colouring will then be
By the way, does anyone kwow if it is possible to invoke the command
window after startup? I normally launch PyMOL with -x, but sometimes
later need the command window, and have to restart the program.

I am trying to color residues off a cartoon loop and want to color the

problem is that if I color the Ca, then that section of the cartoon also
gets colored. If I don't color the Ca, then the cartoon loop color comes
halfway up the bond to the Cbeta. Does anybody have any suggestions, that
is if I haven't made the question so convoluted you can understand it.
Thanks in advance.
