[Chimera-users] Volume save after volume changes

Hi Ryan,
Changing the isosurface contour level is not changing the map.  It’s analogous to opening an atomic structure from the PDB and then changing its coloring…. just a display setting, not an alteration of the underlying data, and these display settings aren’t part of the formats in which the data are saved.
I hope this helps,
