[Chimera-users] Un-tile

Hi Jim,
It is not exactly the same as "untile," but I use the command "reset"  
- that puts all models in their untransformed state.  However, if you  
had previously matched the models or gotten them in your favorite  
orientation, you might not want to use reset.  Other possibilities are

(a) (requiring foresight) use the "savepos position-name" before  
tiling and then "reset-position-name" afterward
(b) use Undo Move (under Tools... Movement) - I recommend this last  
because although it puts the models back on top of each other, it did  
not restore the pre-existing scale and translation when I tried it  
just now...

I hope this helps,
