I have loaded a Gromacs .g96 file into VMD. In my .g96 file, I have several
atom names that start with the letter C: CR, CW, CE, and so on. All of
these atoms are carbons, but I would like to color them separately.
However, when I go to Graphics -> Colors... and click on the Name category
in the dialog box that appears, I only see a single entry for carbon (i.e.,
"C"), rather than separate entries for CR, CW, CE, and so on.
Is there any way I can specify separate colors for CR, CW, CE, and so on,
even though they are all carbons?
I could make separate representations for each of CR, CW, and CE and use the
"ColorID" Coloring Method in Graphical Representations, but if I did that, I
would lose the connectivity of the atoms (at least from my experience).
Thanks so much!
