[Chimera-users] absolute scale?

Hi Cathy,

  I've put code for two commands for setting absolute magnification and
window size  on the Chimera experimental features page:


  The setzoom command sets magnification.  It takes one numeric
argument -- the pixels per angstrom on the screen at the depth of the
center of the displayed models.

  The windowsize command takes the width and height in pixels to set the
Chimera graphics window to.  The width cannot be set to less than about
450 pixels due to a problem I have not resolved where the command entry
area keeps the window width at least that large.
