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.
