In the menu [MODE] you can switch ON/OFF several display modes. The mode bar on the bottom indicates active modes in white color and inactive ones in gray. Note that some modes are mutually exclusive. So for example if you want to measure distances, automatically the rotation mode, shift mode and angle measuring mode are switched off. See also MOUSE USAGE to see the mouse function in the different modes.
The structure can be rotated (in realtime if CPU is fast enough) around the x-, y-, and z-axis.
The image is shifted over the screen or the zooming factor is changed.
Switches between orthonormal projection and perspective projection.
Switches between mono display and stereo pair (parallel view).
Switches display of bonds on/off (if any)
Switches display of coordination polyhedra on/off (if any)
Switches display of unit cell box on/off.
Switches display of labels as given in the input file on/off.
Shows the serial number of atoms in sequence of their generation. These are used to specify coordination polyhedra.
Measure the distance of two atoms by clicking at them.
Measure the angle between three atoms by clicking at them.
make clicked atoms invisible. They may later be made visible again.
speeds up rotations by simplifying the drawing during rotation
when checked JSV displays all bonds using their individual color and style instead of the global settings.
