A lot of times large proteins cannot be moved efficiently by using rubber bands because moving one loop moves it in relation to more than just one other loop. to move a portion of the whole protein would be useful if I could preserve the position of nearby chains.
I think players compensate for this by using freeze and by reducing band strength, but those are workarounds.
The feature would work by setting a minimum of 4 points in space to freeze the space between them (ie. create an ice block holding the parts together) or by setting a plane in space (3 points) and choosing to freeze everything to one or the other side of it.
The frozen bit could then be moved without destroying bonds and creating clashes within it.
