[Chimera-users] Axis vs map rotation

Thanks for the answer...
It is a nice alternative. Although, it's kind of more difficult to manually translate a precise amount of nm. Is there a way, like with the "plane" option, to control precisely the width and the translation of the subregion box? Maybe through a command line, but I have found it...
Thanks again for the help,

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.
I'm using the "Feature >> Plane" options of the "Volume viewer tool" to show contour lines in planes of density maps. For the plane, there are 3 options: "X-axis", "Y-axis", and "Z-axis". The plane I'm interested in is none of those. I try to rotate the maps, but the X, Y and Z axis are also rotating... Do you know if there's a way to rotate the "axis" and the "map" independently, please?
Thanks in advance,
