[Chimera-users] Display axes for global frame of reference?

Hello All,
    I'm considering using Chimera as my general purpose modeling 
graphics front-end and have run into a snag.  I have a protein that I 
need to globally translate and rotate to move several residues to be 
oriented along the x, y, and z axes.  In InsightII, there is an option 
to display the global coordinate system in the main graphics window, so 
that it's easy to manipulate a structure to a given orientation.

    Is there a way to display the global axes like that in Chimera, and 
is it possible to write out the transformed coordinates of a PDB file 
without a lot of difficulty?
