Hi all,

I'm working on a script that displays both drawn objects and isosurfaces of
molecules. I can color the drawn objects with colors within the color
scale, but it seems that if I want to change the colors of the isosurfaces,
I can only set the ColorID to a value in the range 0-32.

For example:
     color scale method RGB
     graphics top color 1024
     graphics top sphere {0 0 0}
     graphics top color 33
     graphics top sphere {0 0 1}

Draws a blue sphere, and then a red sphere. However, once I have drawn my
Isosurface, typing
     mol modcolor 0 top ColorID 1024
only sets the color to 32 (orange3).

Is there a way to access the color scale when coloring my Isosurface?

Thanks for your time.
