[Chimera-users] suggestion/stereo

I am finding that getting the optimal stereo view requires ongoing adjustment of the stereo parameters, particularly when multiple people are observing the structure simultaneously (e.g., depthQ stereo projector).  Currently these numbers have to be typed in, requiring me to break my gaze, move a mouse, and type a number.  Ideally it would good to have controls similar to binoculars, such that you maintain constant view and adjust by turning knobs.

Getting hardware knobs may be impractical, but these improvements could help.
1) two small buttons (+/-) next to each stereo parameter.
2) commands that would do the same (small incremental changes). Then I could have my nostromo n52 USB game box dedicate the dual axis thumb button for stereo adjustment by issuing keyboard commands.

Thanks, Matt
