To retain the order of the atoms in your PDB file, type this “magic command”:

set retain_order,1

Note: this is OK for small molecules but can give rise to serious problems if the object is a protein or a peptide, particularly if site-point mutagenesis is performed

Other commands that can be helpful sometimes are:

set pdb_retain_ids,1

set pdb_no_end_record,1

To save a session for a previous version of PyMOL, e.g. 1.6:

set pse_export_version, 1.6
save 16compat.pse
