[Chimera-users] register file extension .xmp for volume data

    I routinely visualize spider format volume data that are output from 
Xmipp with the extension .xmp. This extension is not registered in 
Chimera and I have to scroll through the formats page each time to 
select 'spider volume data' or open the file with 'chimera 
spider:xxx.xmp'. Is there a way to make Chimera recognize this extension 
as 'spider format' automatically? There was an older Windows version 
that allowed to tell Chimera that all following data were of the same 
format as the first one but I have not seen this in any of the recent 
Linux versions.
Thanks for hints, D.
