[Chimera-users] crystallographic symmops and lattice translations in Chimera

Since the question was raised before,  I think I know the answer to my first question  about lattice translations  but let me verify:

1) Chimera can apply crystallographic symmetry operations to the model as  they're listed in the  pdb file but it won't apply lattice translations, or in other words, won't display molecules in neighbouring unit cells. Am I correct ? maybe you can surprize me me on this  and prove me wrong ?

2) Is it possible to draw the unit cell boundaries after reading in the pdb or should I read in a dummy pdb with coordinates of the unit cell vertices ?
