[Chimera-users] locating models in maps by unit cell transformations

Hi Trevor, Terry,
The method of duplicating the unit cell map and shifting one copy to
have the density cover a PDB model that straddles the boundary can be
made to work with difficulty. Since Chimera is currently too "smart"
and decides to translate both copies of the map in the same way, you
would need to copy the map on disk and open the two files so that
Chimera does not know they are the same. These are of course
desperation measures that we hope to make unnecessary in the future.
