Hi Eric,

Thanks for the swift response, worked like a charm. May I also ask how to set the ’step’ property value from the volume viewer GUI pop-up from a script?

Thanks,

Lars

What little we have you can find here: https://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/docs/ProgrammersGuide/index.html <https://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/docs/ProgrammersGuide/index.html> .  One of our objectives for ChimeraX is much better programmer documentation.
