Dear All,

searching in the archive didn't give me a satisfying solution to my
I am trying to retrieve amino acids that lay on the surface of
proteins. There is the atom selection keyword 'surface' which seems
to only mark/unmark certain types of amino acids that most-likely
appear on the surface/core of proteins. Here, I am rather interested
in a method as it is used in the representation styles 'MSMS' or 'Surf'.
I wonder if there is a way to access the temporally saved lists of
atoms that were found by MSMS or Surf.

Any input is appreciated.
