[Chimera-users] Thoughts re enhancements for ChimeraX

Hi, just thinking about a couple of possible enhancements relating to
things that are probably difficult to fix in the current framework, feel
free to take or leave them.

* Hover to label residue is useful, but slow. Maybe hold down alt/option
and have the residue currently under the cursor instantly bring up a
residue label (or put the residue label in the lower status bar, and have
it change when the cursor moves over another residue)?

* Selecting molecules inside (e.g. mesh) density maps is a little
cumbersome in that it requires un-showing the mesh map first, even though
model is clearly visible - ctrl-clicking on an atom usually selects the map
instead (which is only rarely the desired outcome). perhaps a modifier key
to specifically allow selecting atoms, ignoring maps, would be useful in
this instance?
