Hi Nuno,

Colors above 33 refer to the colormap colors. You *can* set representations to these colors through Tcl commands, but there is no way to do this via the graphical interface.

i would like to add new colors to VMD and save them into a VMD state file.
However I was not able to add those colors.
VMD has 33 colors but in the manual says it can store 1057. I tried the following command
color change 33 {0.9800000190734863 0.0 0.23000000417232513}
but when I count the new color it does not appear
colorinfo num
Can someone give some feedback on this issue.
