Does someone know how to make rubber bands on an apple computer? I just started playing and i love it but i cannot seem to make any rubber bands on my computer. According to the guide, you should ctrl + click on a band to adjust its length or strength but when i do this, the protein will automatically move and there is no rubber band created, can someone help me with this?

Some Ideas:

When I manually add bands, I find it easier
to do so while Foldit is wiggling sidechains.

There are also Foldit Recipes for adding bands:

bandsome (https://fold.it/portal/recipe/43861)
bandsomeSS (https://fold.it/portal/recipe/101275)
bandsome2 (https://fold.it/portal/recipe/103181)
Band Copy-Paste 1.5 (https://fold.it/portal/recipe/100369)

and for adjusting bands:

I hope this helps!
