# Main Menus
# Entry List
The Entry List is a list of all of the structures that have been loaded into the environment.
The Load, Plugin, Display, Color, Modify, Select, and Macro Menus can be displayed by clicking their respective icons located at the bottom of the Entry List.
# Hierarchy Menu
Hierarchy menus lists out the component of an entity, such as chains and residues, in hierarchical levels.
# Different Browsing Modes (Small, Medium, Large)
Different Viewing Modes can be toggled to modify the substructure icon sizes in each menu.
# Frame Data
Frame data allows users to navigate and modify different frames of the same structure (Academic and Enterprise only).
# Electron Density Maps
The Electron Density tab shows the configuration of viewing the Electron Density Map of the structure (Academic and Enterprise only).
# Select/Deselect All
Select or deselect all present structures.
# Invert Selection
Invert current selection.
# Toggle Lock
Lock or unlock selected entities.
# Toggle Box
Show or hide the box frame of selected entities.
# Toggle Visibility
Show or hide the selected entities.
Save the current workspace.
# New Workspace
Discard the current workspace and create a new one.
Export the selected structures in a desired format.
Align the selected entities and place them in the same position under the same coordinate system. Caution: this does not necessarily align the entities by their atom position, and the entities could end up not overlapping after the alignment.
View the seqences of multiple chains and align them.
Delete the selected entities.
Load molecules or structures into your workspace. Supported file formats include: .pdb, .cif, .mmcif, .sdf, .mol, .xyz, .mol2, .ccp4, .dsn6, .dcd, .gro, .pqr, .trr, .xtc, .psf, .pse, .nanome, .png, .jpg, .jpeg, .pdf
Molecules featured by Nanome for their interesting properties or background.
From the Database tab, structures can be directly loaded from RCSB, DrugBank (Academic and Enterprise only), or Pubchem (Academic and Enterprise only). Custom database can also be added by changing the config file.
From the Keyword tab, structure can be loaded from a keyword search.
# My Files
My Files tab allows users to load structures from their local directory.
