Hi Tom,

I have set the location of the preferences file as you just described. 
That helps, thank you

Now, something else that disapears: in the volume viewer, if I add a few 
new features then click "Save Default Dialog Settings", the new features 
are forgotten the next time I reopen Chimera ...
Is there a way to fix that?
