[Chimera-users] question on volume viewer usage

I am using chimera version 1.5 (build 31401 downloaded on 2010-09-16). I
have three pdb files (of same protein) and for each pdb file, i have an
electro static potential file (.dx file). I opened the three pdb files and
then the .dx potential files successively through volume viewer. Each time i
open the .dx file, the isosurfaces are mapped on to the first pdb file. Why
is it so ?.

1) Precisely 1.dx should be mapped on 1.pdb, 2.dx on 2.pdb...etc. How can i
do this ?
2) Is there any way to have a universal setting of volume display options.
Like in isosurface threhold (+2 and -2 in my case), color for +ve and -ve
surface, transparency etc. Because presently i am doing these settings
individually for each .dx file.
