Hi Joel,
After you change the value manually, choose from the Volume Viewer menu: Features… save default dialog settings.  That will save it as "your" default.  Just make sure you haven't changed other things to values you don't want as defaults.


I hope this helps,

I know that this number can be increased manually in the "Data display options" after launching the program, but I would like to change the default number. Is there a built-in Chimera preference to set the default number to something higher? If not, can you perhaps suggest how this might be scripted to happen upon launching the program?
