    You can measure distances between atoms by pressing 2 (or going on the menu Mouse, Label, Atom (2) ) , and then clicking on two atoms. The distance will show as text in the middle. Hope that helps.

I have a question regarding using VMD. Does anyone know how to calculate end-to-end distance in VMD from a PDB file? Currently I do not have a topology or trajectory file, only the PDB.

Thanks in advance,
