When you click on Build -> Add Residue (which is what I assume you are
doing) a message in red text pops up at the left top corner telling you to
pick an atom (to indicate where to add the residue) - maybe you are just
missing this.
When you say you only get a partial structure, do you mean segments are
missing from the terminii or internally. The former results from the
Also it's worth noting that there is bug in earlier versions: I don't
remember the exact details but after looking at a returned model some
residues appear to disappear from the model so check the Control Panel to
see if their view just needs turning on again.
