Selecting Atoms and Molecules
Atoms and molecules need to be selected before surfaces or clusters can be made.
An atom is selected when it is highlighted by a golden mesh.
Select atoms and molecules by left-clicking on them:
- To select a single atom, left-click on it.
- To select a whole molecule or fragment, double left-click on an atom or bond.
- To select everything, right-click to bring up the context menu and choose the menu item Select All Atoms.
To help with choosing atoms you can show the atom labels.
By repeating the left-click operation an item can be deselected.
Left-clicking in the background of the graphics display is the fastest way to deselect everything.
