[Chimera-users] saving map in different position

Hi Gabor,
The "matrixget" command writes the current transformation matrix for 
each model to a file:

The matrices for all open models are written to a single file, and they 
describe the absolute transformations (there is no option to write the 
transformation of one model relative to another).
I hope this helps,
