Subject: [AMBER] translate multiple residues

I have a system with multiple residues. and i connect these residues in
xleap and then save the whole system in prmtop and inpcrd format.

to get the residues in the correct orientation, i use the translate and
transform functions.

the residues consist of a surface, a linker, a dna strand and
oligomers. the dna strand is not described as one residue by as 19

i would like to be able to move (translate) all the dna

e.g. translate sys2.4:22 {x y z}
or translate sys2.4-22 {x y z}

is this possible? the above gave me syntax errors

ps. luckily the dna is in the correct orientation so i don't need to use
the transform function.
