no, currently it is global, sorry. You can:

- refine one isotropic B per residue for all residues (each water or 
ligand are treated as one residue),


- refine two isotropic Bs per residue (one for side and one for main 


- refine one isotropic B per selected set of atoms.

You can't mix the above options. It's in my to-do list to make it 
possible (at least two people asked about this before).
