Introducing the Trim Tool!

Hey Foldit players!

We're very excited to announce the addition of Foldit's newest feature: the Trim tool.

Trimming and Untrimming in Foldit is a very important addition that will make it much easier for players to work with much larger proteins than ever before!

In the past, it's been difficult to work with large proteins in Foldit because Foldit features (such as scoring and displaying proteins) are computationally intensive and scale with the size of a protein.

The Trim tool allows for the use of larger proteins without a sacrifice in performance by allowing users to trim a protein down to some set of selected residues.

Simply select the region you want to work with, and use the U hotkey to reduce the puzzle down to the selected region. Once you're done working with that region, hit the U hotkey again to Untrim and return to the full puzzle.
