Hello,

In short, I'm playing around with pymol and have come across 2 problems.

1. How can I open 2 separate windows of pymol from the same script

2. Closing pymol closes the entire script. How do I continue running stuff after pymol is closed within my script?

Test code:

pymol import cmd
import pymol

def pymol_window_1():
pymol.finish_launching()

def pymol_window_2():
pymol.finish_launching()

def main():
pymol_window_1()
pymol_window_2()
print('this')

main()


The issue with the above code is it will open the pymol window, but only one. I'd like 2 separate windows to open of the same pdb file within the same script.

Furthermore, the "this" that should be printed, never is. Once the pymol window closes the entire program closes. I found a thread where this issue was mentioned in 2005, and it was stated there the next version of pymol would allow you to do this, but I don't know how.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
