No, some combination of options to trjconv should work. Sometimes two 
two separate invocations with separate options are needed.

BTW "...does not stay stationary as it should" is not true... you're 
wanting a certain feature for your visualization convenience, and during 
the simulation GROMACS hadn't permitted you to choose which of the 
infinite equivalent possibilities it should present in the trajectory. 
You're choosing that now, *after* the fact.
