[Chimera-users] Toggle active vs displayed for checkboxes at bottom of screen?

Hi, this is more of a feature suggestion than anything, and I guess it is unlikely to be implemented before Chimera 2, but thought I’d put it out there anyway. 

Currently the checkboxes at the bottom of the main display control whether or not a model is active - this is very handy when reorienting models with respect to one another. 

I would love a similar means to toggle the display of individual models without going to the model panel. One way would be to alter the “Active models” text label (circled in screenshot) to “Displayed models”, and change the behaviour/meaning of the checkboxes accordingly, similar to the A/I/R/S selection mode changer at the bottom right of the main display. 

So you would click “Active models”, and the text would switch to “Displayed models”, and the configuration of the checkboxes  would change so that the displayed models (rather than the active models) are checked. 

Is this something that would be possible in a future version?
