Set sphere scale for a specific atom

To have specific atoms as spheres bigger than the other atom spheres: 
1. make selection of the specific atom, and
2. call it for example pincopallino, 
3. then run:

alter pincopallino, vdw=3.0
rebuild

Example:


The spheres of the Glu on the left were put on after setting:

set sphere_scale, 0.3

Then, the Lys on the right was selected, selection automatically named (sele), and the following command used:

show spheres, sele
alter sele, vdw=3.0
rebuild
