Dear VMD-L,

I would like to place a protein inside a membrane. For that purpose I am
using VMD move tool (mouse->move->molecule) to superpose the membrane
and the protein.
In order to adjust the protein placement/orientation I load the protein
lipophilicity potential map and displays it as isosurfaces. I would like
to move the protein with its map but the VMD move tool leave the volume
data in place.
Is there a way to move the volume data (or a fixed representation of the
data) with the protein?

Thanks for any help



PS: for those interested, I just posted the code to generate the
lipophilicity potential maps, you may find it here:
