Freeze and Pull:
If a person wants to keep a chunk of a model stationary on the screen, he/she can freeze it. A freeze will not allow a segment to move by pulling with the mouse. This is visually and spatially very useful. It is especially useful when using a guide, or when a person is satisfied with a partial solution of a protein.
Freeze and Bands (Is this a bug?):
A frozen segment is not stationary when wiggling or when using a band. A visual frame of reference is lost. Essentially, all the detail work is lost, and everything bends.
Could you make the freeze functions consistent as per "Freeze and Pull"
If it is not the intent of freeze to work that way could you instead add a "Reference Segment" feature that allows the user to specify one segment of a model which will remain visually stationary in position and orientation in 3D model space. This segment could be chosen as needed by the person folding.
