[Chimera-users] How to recreate point of view

Hi Stefan,
You could try opening one session (the one whose viewpoint you want to use for both), and using "matrixget" to save the transformation matrix to file.  E.g. on my mac I could use:

matrixget ~/Desktop/mymatrixfile

Then close session, open the other session, and use "matrixset" to apply the previously saved transformation:

matrixset ~/Desktop/mymatrixfile

See description of these commands:

I hope this helps,
