6.4.5. Reset View

Return the camera to the default position.

6.4.6. Align View

Change the direction of the line of sight of the camera.

6.4.7. Zoom In/Out

Expand or reduce the field of view.

6.4.8. Always View Center

If checked here, even if the displayed molecular structure changes, the center of gravity at that point will always be the gaze point of the camera. If it is not entered, gaze point will not change unless explicit gaze change.

6.4.9. View Marked Atom

Specify atom attached with marker (thick red circle) as gaze point.

6.4.10. Pan

Drag left on the main window to move the line of sight in parallel.

6.4.11. Rotate Around Center

Drag left in the main window to rotate the camera around the point of interest. Around X, Y, Z-Axis

Drag left in the main window to rotate the camera around each axis. Around Line of Sight

Drag left in the main window to rotate the display. Rotate the display (Numerical)

Enter the rotation angle of the display.

6.4.12. View Preset

Save and load display settings at once.

6.4.13. Perspective

If checked here, perspective is applied to Viewport.

6.4.14. Enable Depth Cueing

If this is checked, fog is applied to Viewport. This makes it easy to distinguish between atoms in front and back. Fog strength can be set with Tools ‣ Preferences menu.

6.4.15. Enable Specular Lighting

If this is checked, the atoms will be glossed over in the molecular display area.

6.4.16. Items

Check the items to be displayed in Viewport.

6.4.17. Label/Charge

In Viewport, a label (annotation) and a sphere showing the magnitude of the charge are displayed beside each atom.
