EDIT-LIG

Function

EDIT-LIG allows you to alter the position of the brackets and value of the multiplier around a ligand in the structure.

Remarks

If your structure contains no ligands then EDIT-LIG is greyed in the EDIT menu so that you cannot select it.

Example

Suppose we have constructed the fragment (i) below.

We wish to edit the ligand to change the multplier and to include the lower C in the ligand.

EDIT-LIG allows you to change the multiplier value associated with a ligand and then gives you the opportunity to move the corners of the brackets, to change the atoms that lie in the ligand.

See also EDIT-REP for some comments on the incorrect positioning of atoms after shifting, scaling or rotating.
