Re: [Jmol-users] "Jmol" for iPads? Robert Hanson Tue Apr 03 15:01:16 2012

I wasn't necessarily trying to say anything. But I'm interested in what
those controls can do. Is it limited to a few standard operations like
changing overall rendering? I think maybe it's limited to just a few simple
operations being simple to implement. At least now. For example, I haven't
found a "select" command that lets me do something more interesting with a
subset of the atoms. I could be missing it....

If nature does not answer first what we want,
it is better to take what answer we get.
