Hi Jean-Francois,
The rotation method is remembered as part of the session. You could start the session, change the method to what you want and re-save (or save to a new session name).

For the rotation method you get by just starting Chimera without a session file, you can change the default by choosing "Tools... Movement... Rotation", setting the method, and clicking Save to apply your change to later uses of Chimera.  If you open a session file, however, the method saved with that session will be used.

I hope this helps,
