TRANSLATE command sentence moves atom or point selection by the specified vector.
ATOMS POINTS SURFACE VOLUME POTENTIAL DENSITY
SELECT ... END
VECTOR 3*real DISTANCE (abs(3*real)) real RMS
TRANSLATES selected atoms by adding the specified vector. This is the default, it just makes the syntax easier to understand.
TRANSLATES the specified kind of points of selected atoms.
The translational vector must be specified by its X Y and Z components. When the DISTANCE is specified than the specified vector is normalized to length 1.0 and each component is multiplied by the specified distance.
The translational vector is taken from the last RMS fit calculation.
The translational vector is calculated from the current image center and the center (arithmetic middle) of the selected coordinates. The selected atoms are translated into the center of the image.
