[Chimera-users] Zoom factor for model when first opened

Hi Kevin,

  The camera settings (position, amount of zoom, angular field of view) 
all contribute to how much of the Chimera window is filled when you open 
a map.  How those are initially set when you start Chimera and open a 
map has changed a few times over the last year or two so if you run 
different Chimera versions (Help / About Chimera... to check version 
number) you may see different initial sizes.
