I think you are looking for “protein or resname LIG”.

Your version is saying <I want the selection “protein” and (within the selection “protein”) “resname LIG” >.
But “protein” does not contain “resname LIG”, so it shows nothing.

I loaded a trajectory file from a molecular dynamics run with DESMOND.

I can do individual atom selection but not combinations:
- this works: protein
- this works: resname LIG
- this doesn't work: protein and resname LIG

I am using VMD for LINUXAMD64, version 1.9.4a55.

Suggestions are welcome!
