[Chimera-users] Axis vs map rotation

Hi Nicolas,

   To show an oblique slice of a map you can use the volume dialog 
"subregion selection" panel.  The "planes" panel can only display slices 
perpendicular to the volume axes as you found.  There's a video showing 
how to show the oblique slice on the Chimera video tutorial web page


The Chimera volume guide has a text description of the procedure.
