[Chimera-users] Morphing with two models

Hi Enrico,
I am not sure I understand the question.  You just want to superimpose  
one structure on another to prepare for morphing?  There are several  
ways to superimpose structures, as discussed here:

The "match" and "matchmaker" methods described in that page keep one  
model fixed and move the other on top of it.  Then you could use  
"Actions... Focus" or the "focus" command to center the view, or just  
move both together with the mouse.

I can't think of a single command that would move both models but in  
opposite directions.  You could have two commands, essentially moving  
one model to the right and the other to the left (command "move" is  
simple translation), but that would not necessarily superimpose them  

I hope this helps,
