When rotamer shuffling sidechains on Puzzle 1564 I came across the realization that I really wanted to rotate specific sidechain bonds through their rotamers rather than just shuffling through them all with the arrow keys which would make the game lag.
What I'd propose is having it shuffle through all rotamers when the mouse is hovered over the backbone, but have the arrow keys shuffle through rotamers of the specific bond (if not ring-locked) when moused over. Another idea I had was doing something similar to the little arrows that pop up when using Tweak, except on sidechains. A player could click on a hinge, switch rotamers with a few clicks, and get a sidechain in the rotamer position they want with less fuss.
