[Chimera-users] 3D dashed pseudobond styles?

Hmm, I just remembered that BILD format can include character strings along with 3D arrows:
<plato.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/docs/UsersGuide/bild.html>!

However, there are limitations... the resulting text (while located in 3D) is flat and only horizontal in the unrotated orientation.  You’d have to write out your structure(s) in transformed coordinates in the orientation for the image and then read them back in along with the BILD file with corresponding coordinates. 

Also, there seem to be serious bugs in this rarely (never?) used feature:
- fontsize specification ignored
- no compensation for supersampling so if you supersample, the text in the image is much bigger than in the Chimera window

Nevertheless I attached text file ex.bild with some arrows and text as an example.
