[Chimera-users] Center of rotation cross-hair

Dear Tom - just tried this out and it works exactly as I would hope - this makes it much easier to navigate precisely within a structure, thank you. 

One additional request on this - would it be possible to add a parameter that locks global clipping on for the session unless explicitly altered by the user? 

At the moment, it seems that global clipping is off by default for a new session even if I try to save it in the camera settings, and then in “center of view” mode the cofr keeps shifting about as the clipping planes auto adjust. It would be great to have a way to set clipping planes on as the default unless explicitly altered.

Best,
Oliver.
