However, I am having trouble keeping everything on the same scale.  I am able to set the windowsize, center the maps but the zoom is not always the same.  I searched the web and found that there used to be zoom and setzoom commands that should do the trick, but neither is recognized in my version of chimera (commands I mean).  All of the maps have the same starting A/px but what I want to do is take the map with the largest extent and set that and whatever its being aligned too to fill the window then for every other session have the same windowsize and effective zoom.  Pardon my inelegant description but I hope that provides sufficient explanation for what I am trying to do.

Hi John,
Sending this to chimera-users at cgl.ucsf.edu, the recommended address for Chimera questions.  That way, whoever has the expertise can answer, and others can benefit.

This previous post may answer your question.  It says you have to download the setzoom command code separately and provides a link.

I hope this helps,
