Jump to navigation Jump to search
Changed in PyMOL 2.5: Cylinders are not straight anymore but follow the actual curved shape of a helix. Straight helices are still available as mode 2.
- 0: Off (helices will be rendered according to the cartoon property or settings like cartoon_fancy_helices)
- 1: Curved helices (since PyMOL 2.5)
- 2: Straight helices
