[Chimera-users] Saving session with IMOD model

Hi Huy,

   As Elaine mentioned, IMOD models aren't recorded in Chimera session 
files.  The IMOD files can be very large so I'm not sure we want the 
data embedded in Chimera session files.  An alternative is to remember 
the path to the IMOD file in the session file.  If you recolor or delete 
parts of the IMOD model that method won't work.  Another request to save 
IMOD models in sessions is already on the Chimera request list, item 101.


I've added your name to that request.
