Hi Yasser,

  If you want to try ChimeraX you can make the grouping of models and submodels however you like using the ChimeraX “rename” command to change the model id numbers.  For instance to put models #1-10 under a single group #11.1-10

	rename #1-10 id #11

You should also be able to rename to id #1 but I got an error doing that which I will fix today.

Opening an NMR ensemble of atomic models  (e.g. 1plx) or showing multiple isosurfaces for the same density map automatically makes a group, as in the attached image.  However, there isn’t a way for the user to group models manually (at least yet) or add notes to a model or group.

Currently, if I make a group, and then ungroup, I lose the definition, notes ans any other action on it. If there is no possibility, I would suggest the developers to consider the option to make groups with dropdown list of models.
