The Freeze command as seen in the Foldit GUI recipe editor.

Freeze is a command used in GUI recipes in Foldit.

Freeze sses one ingredient, segments.

The segments ingredient can be specified in three ways:

  • All
  • By Stride
  • User Pick

Using "all" for the segments ingredient causes all segments in the puzzle to be frozen. In contrast, using "by stride" for the segments ingredient causes only specific segments to be frozen. See by stride for more on this option.

The "user pick" option for the segments ingredient means the user is prompted to pick segments by clicking on them when the recipe reaches the command. A user pick is similar to selecting segments in the selection interface, but there are some differences. See user pick for more on this option.

See Segments Ingredient for a complete explanation of specifying segments.

The Freeze command freezes both the backbone and sidechains of the specified or selected segments.

The Freeze command is similar to freezing segments manually in the original or the selection interfaces. The equivalent Lua commands are freeze.Freeze or freeze.FreezeSelected.
