For the new all-hands puzzles a tool to copy a part of a solution to another solution (of the same protein of course) would be great.

Would not the copied part get deformed during the first wiggle?

As I saw, the application is very particular about the integrity of the protein as a whole unit. Copying a part of it from an other solution could cause problem with this... I guess.

I think the whole protein would change its shape during the first wiggle, potentially with a higher score.

Of course you would have to refine the shape afterwards.

Yes, this is something that we have considered, in order to allow players to take chunks of the different all hands puzzles and glue them together in a manner that doesn't completely whack the protein out of shape. This is a great idea, but I wouldn't expect to see it in the impending release of the all hands mode, it will more likely be a bit further down the road.

We can use thread tool to mix solutions. Done.
