Would it be possible to add a "save to thread" option, where the current configuration of the protein, and a "save partial to thread" option where an area can be selected and then added to the available threads list for a protein ? It would also be helpful if threads could be named so you could differentiate when looking at them more easily.

This would be helpful for mixing/matching bits and pieces from one solution to another, or for manipulation of the protein such as folding sheets at a specific segment, matching loop structure, or aligning bonds. It may also help with restoring loop structures at the end of a helix or loop or other simple things after drastic changes such as register shifts or helix rebuilds.

Nice, I already wrote Dr Baker about your idea some days before, and he liked it.
I called it morphing of two solutions.
A whole-puzzle storing would be more fail-safe I guess, as you can still thread only a part of the loaded information.

This is implemented now and will go out soon. When you load a guide, it will be added to the templates you can thread from.

This was such a useful feature... Is it no longer available ?

Would love to use it, even on non-alignment puzzles :(

There also needs to be an "align to template" option similar to "align guide." (Currently, the option of threading a loaded guide is much less useful if the overall structure differs significantly.)

we will look into why this is no longer available

so this has always worked on alignment puzzles, what you are asking for is for it to work with puzzles that don't use the Alignment Tool?

As a stop-gap measure, one option might be including the starting configuration as a dummy template so that the alignment tool could be enabled for almost any puzzle.

Yes. But we need ability to load more than 1 solution to mix them.
