Feedback and bugs reports

Your feedback is not only welcomed, it is higly useful as it keeps me aware of any problems. So far, I have received numerous reports of happy users, which keeps me happy too and helps me to continue to improve the Swiss-PdbViewer.

You can also send me a list of what you would like to see in future versions, and I will try to satisfy you (no guarantee of course).

Concerning bugs, I will do my best to fix them providing you send me an exact report of what's wrong. That means that when you find a bug, try to reproduce it and send me the following informations:

  • What version of Swiss-PdbViewer do you use ?
  • On which platform ?
  • What is the exact operation that causes the problem, and in which condition ?
  • Does the problem concerns every PDB file or just a specific one (if so, send me the incriminated file)
  • Can you solve the problem by deleting (with a word processor) any HETATM and CONECT from the file before loading it.


Hi !

I've noticed a problem with the version 1.3 for Mac 68K:
the program crashes when I perform the following operations:

- open file 1abc.pdb
- open file 1def.pdb
- Magic fit of 1def onto 1abc
- Bring the layer 1def to front
- Generate a structural alignement.

The program crashes during the last operation.

My computer is a Quadra 700 with 16Mb of memory, system 7.5, and I don't run any fancy extensions.
