I'm attaching a before and after snapshot of a case where I clicked on a "Cis backbone connection. Click to switch to trans." balloon and it produced an invalid result. Score drops are not surprising, but this probably shouldn't happen.

This is the intended behavior of the tool. It is a low-level tool that directly modifies a single degree of freedom to the valid value. If you want to try and preserve global conformation, you should use one of the existing tools such as rebuild. Alternatively, as another player has suggested, you can insert a cut so that the DOF change does not propagate all the way down the chain.

If that's the case, I find it not very helpful and the "balloons" extremely annoying. I keep disabling it on various clients and different computers but it seems to keep coming back. Isn't there some way to have the option sticky, like the dark background option? Enabling initially by default is fine, but please make it "computer" (installation) sticky at the very least.

It should stay off if you disable it. It is saved out to the options.txt file like everything else. Make sure you click "Save and Exit" when you close the program, and it should work.

I actually intended to make it off by default, and will probably make that change soon. It's a bit more of an advanced topic and probably shouldn't be popping up unless someone is specifically interested in seeing it.
