Hi Christopher,

  If you have 10 models open in a Chimera session and you close model 
number 7, the session should still save correctly.  If it doesn't please 
report it as a bug.  Unfortunately restoring the session file uses 
different model numbers for the density maps (the lowest available 
numbers).  That is a bug that I need to fix.  It should use all of the 
original model numbers even if there are gaps.  Even though the model 
numbers will change, the orientations of all the models 1-6 and 8-10 
will all be correct in the restored session.

  I sent your earlier email to our Chimera users mailing list.  That is 
why your reply to me went to that mailing list.  I like to post the 
questions to the mailing list so others can benefit from the answer and 
I remove any confidential information (email, phone, signature line, 
research details).  Let me know if you want to keep your questions off 
of the Chimera mailing list.  Here's the message where I posted your 
original question and my reply.
