Hello all,

I would like to store all VMD setting in a text file, to be read multiple times.
I mean for example “pbc box”, or drawing methods to “DynamicBonds” and ideally create a movie.

I have tried “vmd `cat readfile`” where readfile contains all the LAMMPS dumpfiles I want to visualize.
This works, but if I add the topol command (such as “pbc box”), VMD interprets it as another file to read (and issues an ERROR).

Thank you for your help

Best Regards,
