quick answer: yes, it is possible to do and I think this is described here:
"13 typical occupancy refinement scenarios and available options in
Make a parameter file where you explicitly state each conformer as an
individual group, something like this:
selection = chain X and resseq 123 and altloc A
selection = chain X and resseq 123 and altloc B
In this case one occupancy will be refined for "chain X and resseq 123
and altloc A" and it will be constrained between 0 and 1. Likewise, one
occupancy will be refined for "chain X and resseq 123 and altloc B" and
it will be constrained between 0 and 1. The mutual relation between the
two occupancies will not be constrained in any way. So if you are lucky
then their sum may end up being less than 1.
Let me know if you have questions or need help!
I hope Billy can tell how to do this in the GUI!
All the best,
