Dear John and all VMD users,

Here sorry to disturb you for one question.

I want to use VMD to shift the protein and transform the coordinate of the
pdb file, for example:

in the pdb file 1TIT.pdb for I 27, the original coordiate for CA atoms of
residue 1 and residue 89:

CA atom of residue 1 : -18.458 10.272 -7.373
CA atom of residue89: 19.652 -6.026 4.758

now, I want to set the coordinate of residue 1 CA atom to 14.000 36.000
35.000 and want to set the y and z value of residue 89 CA atom to 36.000
35.000, after this set, these two CA atoms will be in the same plane. But I
do not know how to use VMD to transform it, wish you will tell me how to do
it. Much appreciate to your help.

Best regards
