[Chimera-users] Planes feature in the Volume Viewer

when using the Planes tool in Volume Viewer, are the planes numbered 
from 0 or 1? I loaded a contour using the IMOD import, where I had drawn 
the contour on slice 12 of a volume; however, it appears that the plane 
that transects the contour in Chimera is '11' when using the Planes 
tool. I tried to test the enumeration by exceeding bounds (150 slices 
are in the volume, so was expecting an error for an entry of '150' if it 
was enumerated from zero), but it appears that slice indices outside the 
range of the loaded volume just default to the limit in either direction 
(typing in '200' just sets it to the highest-enumerated slice).
