Is there a way to change the rendering of the H-bonds? I'd like to emphasize them a bit more.

Starting with the 2013-3 release, you can change the line width and the color of the H-bond and contacts markers. Both color and line width changes can be made in the Preferences panel, under Non-bonded interactions – Display (2014-3 on) or H-Bonds and Contacts (2013-3 to 2014-2). Color changes can also be made in the Non-Bonded Interactions panel (2014-3 on) or H-Bonds and Contacts panel (2014-2 and earlier). In earlier releases than 2013-3, you can only change the color.

Changing the color can be done as follows:

2014-3 release on

  1. Choose Tools → H-Bonds and Halogen Bonds.
  2. In the H-Bonds & halogen bonds section, click the color button.
  3. Choose a new color in the color selector.

Suite 2012 Update 2 to 2014-2 release

  1. Choose Tools → H-Bonds and Contacts.
  2. In the H-Bonds tab, click the color button.
  3. Choose a new color in the color selector.

Suite 2012 Update 1 and earlier

  1. Choose Tools → Measurements → H-Bonds.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. Choose a new color in the color selector.

If you are saving an image, you may be able to edit it in a graphics editing package to change the H-bond appearance.
