In the new version, you can access the control parameters for the visual model via the Inspector. For that, simply select the Adenita visual model and open the Inspector - you can right-click on the Adenita visual model and choose Inspect in the context menu.
Hi Chris, thanks again for reaching out! As discussed, this was caused by having ligands with multiple connected components, which Vina cannot dock. We will try to provide clearer error messages to prevent this. Thanks again!
We have improved the performance of surface visual models (Gaussian, Solvent Accessible, and Solvent Excluded surfaces) in certain cases. For example, now animations with them should be much faster. The visual models should be automatically updated for you once you restart SAMSON.
we just released an update of the editors which makes it possible to use the current selection to build. This should make it easier to build any polymer you want by repeatedly adding larger and larger groups.
When using the Rectangle selection editor (the default editor, shortcut R), show the context menu (either by right-clicking in the viewport, right-clicking in the Document view, or clicking the green selection widget in the Document view). The third context menu action is Use selection to build:
Clicking this action automatically switches to the Add editor ands use the selection as a building fragment:
The Use selection to build action is also available in the context menu when the Add editor (shortcut A), Edit bonds editor (shortcut B) and Edit charges editor (shortcut C) are active. Here it is for example in the Add editor:
The file is loaded ok. The model and the selection (in orange) are partially hidden by the Fog effect. You can switch off the Fog effect in the Visualization menu > Effects > Fog or modify the Fog parameters in the Preferences (Ctrl/Cmd + K) > Rendering > Fog - set the far distance to 100 A, for example.
Adenita is a third-party extension developed by external developers. Since it is open-source, we started porting it ourselves to the latest SAMSON. The latest SAMSON compared to the versions of SAMSON which support Adenita has a lot of major changes meaning that the porting process will take quite some time especially together with fixing some issues in Adenita. Currently, we cannot give a time estimate since we work on it occasionally in our free time, but we hope it will be ready in the upcoming months.
Covalent bonds are created based on the interatomic distances. Maybe the atoms are placed too far from each other? Could you please check the distance between atoms in your system - you can do it using the Measure editor by clicking on two atoms consecutively. Could you please attach a .cif file in which you experience the problem such that we could check it.
By the way, are you referring to .cif for biomolecules (mmcif/PDBx format) or .cif for crystals?
