9.4 Saving the Membrane File

When you have completed your membrane, you should finally generate its pdb-file (which is the main objective of this program, after all).

You will only be able to generate the file if your membrane is not empty and not exceeding any limits.

Press 'Generate the Pdb File' , found in the 'File' menu or in the toolbar.

After you've made your selection, press 'Save' in order to finally generate your membrane file.
