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

Hi Oliver,
	Thanks for pointing out this problem.  Axes/planes/centroids weren't saving their display on/off state in scenes or sessions.  I have fixed the code and the fix will be in tonight's daily build.  Look for a build dated Jan. 14th or later.  Using such a build you will be able to restore your session but will have to re-save the scenes where you have one or more axes/planes/centroids undisplayed in order to have the correct display state preserved in the scene.  Then things should work as you expect.
