Hi Hernando,

  How about using the measure rotation command?  For example,

    measure rotation #0 #1 color pink

where #0 and #1 are the maps or molecules whose relative position you want to illustrate.  It shows the axis in the specified color.  You can also add the "showSlabs true" option to show rectangular slabs with edge meeting the axis which illustrate the angle of rotation.




Is there  a way to display  an axis line? I would like to display the rotation and translation axis as given in the reply log after a fit in map operation.
