[Chimera-users] How to display automatically the atoms in Gaussian cube file format

Hi Hyung,

   The Chimera Gaussian cube file reader ignores the atoms specified in 
the file and just displays the volume data.  I'll add to our requested 
features list an entry to also display the atoms.  There are hundreds of 
new features requested and I do not know when this one might get done. 
Eric Pettersen says that if you have a Gaussian checkpoint file with the 
same atoms you can open that and it will display the atoms.
