Useful for saving and restoring secondary structure

It's easy to lose changes to secondary structure, especially on design puzzles.

Some recipes change everything to loops, and either don't restore the original values or crash before they can.

You can save the structures via ctrl-shift-9 and restore them using ctrl-9 (on Windows), but this information is lost if the client crashes.

SS Edit displays the current secondary structure. You can cut or copy the displayed value (the "SStruct" field) and paste it into the editor or spreadsheet of your choice, or even save it in a segment note on the protein.

You can also paste in a new value. When you click the "Change" button, the value in the "SStruct" field is applied to the protein.

All the changes are logged to the scriptlog.

Make sure to use only the foldit codes "H" for helix, "E" for sheet, and "L" for loop. Any other values may produce Unpredictable Results.

See "AA Copy Paste Compare v 1.1.1 -- Brow42" for a full-function recipe that works with both primary and secondary structure.
