ConQuest behaves oddly when manipulating structures in 3D


In some cases, when selecting atoms in the 3D viewer, the wrong atom will be shown selected. This has only been observed on Mac OSX and Linux and the fix is similar for both platforms:

  • MacOSX
    • Open a Terminal
    • cd to the top of the CSD_System_20XX tree
    • cd to conquest.app/Contents/Resources/lib/hitbrowser/Browser
    • copy RendererV1.py to Renderer.py
  • Linux
    • Open a terminal
    • cd to the top of the cambridge/ tree
    • cd to lib/hitbrowser/Browser
    • copy RendererV1.py to Renderer.py​
