[Chimera-users] Saving full map when zoning

Hi Jean-Francois,

  You can save a map with the original map size while using volume zone 
by first pressing the the
"Full" button in the Features / Subregion Selection panel of the volume 
dialog.  Then use the File / Save Map As button.  You can see what 
region will be saved by looking at the Features / Region Bounds panel 
(and you could type in new bounds there and press the Enter key instead 
of pressing the Full button).

  The volume zone capability (Features / Zone) normally uses a smaller 
box of data so that it is faster.  Even when part of the surface is 
hidden by the zoning the whole surface within the box being used is 
computed and that is sometimes slow.
