[Chimera-users] shown/hidden state of axes/planes not saved with scene

Hi all,

Planes seem to be shown by default when I load a scene, regardless of whether they were displayed when I saved the scene. 

This is not normally an issue, but it is a little problematic when preparing animations using many different scenes - I will often have a plane defined at the start so I can use it to align the x/y/z axes to the normal of that plane (e.g. aligning the fourfold axis of an ion channel), but I do not want the plane displayed during the animation, and I don’t want to have to delete it from each scene and re-arrange the animation timeline if I can avoid doing so. 

Would it be possible to alter this behavior such that chimera knows the displayed/undisplayed states of axes/planes/centroids when saving a scene or session?
