ViewDock is a UCSF Chimera extension for viewing output poses from several docking software packages. There is a tutorial on the Chimera web pages.

Keyboard shortcuts

Using ViewDock requires a fair amount of clicking and mouse movement. To reduce these you can use this Chimera accelerators script, mostly written by Tom Goddard (Chimera user list discussion):

def register_accelerators():                                                     
  from Accelerators import standard_accelerators                                 
  from Accelerators import add_accelerator                                       
  add_accelerator('cd', 'Mark current View Dock compound deleted', vdock_delete) 
  add_accelerator('cx', 'Mark current View Dock compound purged', vdock_purged)  
  add_accelerator('cv', 'Mark current View Dock compound viable', vdock_viable)  
  add_accelerator('cn', 'Move to next View Dock compound', vdock_next)           
  add_accelerator('cp', 'Move to next View Dock compound', vdock_previous)       
  add_accelerator('ct', 'Print ViewDock totals to Reply Log', vdock_totals)                      
def vdock_delete():

To use, enable Chimera keyboard shortcuts and load the new file.

Accelerators "cv" (Viable), "cd" (Delete), "cx" (Purge), work like clicking the radio buttons in the ViewDock dialog box - they change the status of the selected compound. Accelerators "cn" and "cp" move forward or back one compound. "ct" counts the compounds with each status, the output is shown in the Chimera "Reply Log" (Tools > Utilities > Reply Log).


There is an equivalent tool ViewDockX in the next generation visualisation tool ChimeraX.
