On the puzzles where we are given a straight sequence like 186 it would be handy to be able to mark a helix segment and then have an option on the tweak menu to have a "super straighten". This would make the sequence assume the helix shape in one shot. Right now, trying to get inner loops to coil properly is a real pain. On 186 I've been only able to get a couple to coil reasonably.
1) Straightening the loops directly and that is either painfully slow or practically impossible
2) Marking the entire sequence as a loop and then coiling that. The problem is then uncoiling the non-loop structures.
a. Uncoiling via pulling the ends is slow and only partially effective
b. Uncoiling via straightening the sheets is also slow and only slightly less cumbersome than #1
