I have an O file with a bunch of molecules loaded. On one of them i am trying to draw a ca trace and i am not able anymore to do this. ...Anymore, because previously, before running a series of macros that select atoms, plot, and ... it worked fine. Without saving the o file after these macros, ei using CTRL-C, I am not able to use the usual command for drawing the ca trace for one of the molecules
mol p498 ca_zone 16 245 obj ca498 end
What I get is only a couple of atoms (11) with conn btw only 4 of them.
When I looked at the odb for this molecule (P498_ATOM_SELECT), most of the values were 0's, so great i said, there is my problem; so i reset everything to 1's with ODBMAN using the command: SEt ALl odb value. This did not solve my problem. Can you tell me what is going on??? I want my ca trace back!

Try select_on ;; inside O to re-select all atoms then select_vis to restore the visibility of all atoms

Ouf!!! happy to see you were still logged on. It worked. I actually did try this before but mol was not set on the right molecule. I suppose i should include these commands at the end of any macro that uses sel_!!! to make sure that the visibility of all atoms is restored.
