[Chimera-users] Activation buttons (namely "All")

Hi all,
	The activation buttons below the command line have an “All” button that works much the same way as the “activate all” button in the Model Panel works:  if you check it on, then all models are activated for motion; if you check it off then the previous activation states are restored.  It has been suggested that the behavior could instead be that when checked off all models would be deactivated (making it easier in some cases to go from moving all models to moving just one).  I’m trying to find out if any users make strong use of the current behavior of that button and wouldn’t want it changed.  Conversely, I wouldn’t mind hearing people who would really like to see the behavior switched.
	Regardless of the outcome of the discussion, the behavior of the corresponding Model Panel button would remain the same for a couple of reasons:  1) when clicked, the text of the button changes to “restore activities” so there’s less chance of confusion, and 2) there’s a separate “deactivate” button.
	I will interpret lack of feedback as “sure, go ahead”. :-)
