[Chimera-users] absolute scale?

Is there a way to set an "absolute scale" for viewing in 
chimera?  I'm trying to make pictures in multiple Chimera sessions 
with different molecules and would like for the results to be all on 
the same scale.  I naively thought I could do this with the "camera" 
scale but then I noticed that for two different sessions where this 
value was set to 1.0, the actual scales are quite different.  Chimera 
help revealed that the camera scale is relative to the original size 
when the model was first opened.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!
