I'd like an x y and z axis to keep track of where everything is. I'm still going through the tutorial.

I think none is provided because it really doesn't matter which way is whitch. There was actually a question about gravity, and the devs said that it really didn't have much of an impact with what direction the protein was.

I realize it doesn't matter for the protein function, but it would help keep track of where parts of the protein are and can facilitate communication of the protein.

For structure purposes only angles and lengths from atom to atom are enough. The standard format pdb just gives those.

Colin92130,

I also think in X, Y, Z and miss the axes. They just don't seem to appear in protein work. I did create a script function in public share (refaxes) to help with orientation. It is for visual orientation only and does not represent any universal system used to locate things.
