These preview chapters are intended to get new PyMOL users up and running quickly, without plodding through a formal review of every detail. They are planned as part of a comprehensive manual, so you may find references to future chapters that are not yet included here. Nonetheless, we think they will be helpful in their current form, especially to new users. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any constructive feedback you might have on these documents.
