Pymol super useful tip for Renumbering residues

This is already in the Pymol Wiki, but still, I was so happy when I found it :)

# The first residue in the structure file for 1cll is 4.  To change this to 0, maybe to match scripts
# outputted from other programs, just remove the offset of 4 from each atom
alter 1cll, resi=str(int(resi)-4)
# refresh (turn on seq_view to see what this command does).
sort

If you have to compare a bunch of different structures of the same protein and they all have stupidly different numberings (who the hell starts counting at 500?) this helps a bit when you say “residue 10” instead of “residue 10 in struct 1, 24 in struct 2, etc…”.

Thanks PymolWiki!
