  The range of supported formatting specifiers are:
%a atom name
%d resid
%i atom index
%q charge
%R resname
%r camelcase resname

You can add any extra label text you like just by typing it in to
the graphical interface along with the format specifiers.

If you want to manipulate the appearance of a large number of labels
at once, you can simply select them all at once in the graphical interface,
and then the changes you make to the formatting string will apply to all
of them.
