[Chimera-users] Move molecule to center of rotation?

Hi all,

Feature suggestion - it would be very useful if there was a way to automatically move a specific molecule to the current center of rotation (relative to all other models). I can do this manually by deactivating all other  models for motion and moving using the “move” command or the mouse, but it seems like this could be made much quicker by automatically applying the translations necessary to bring a given molecule to the current center of rotation.  I can probably do this using a python script but I think it is also a generally useful feature, particularly when fitting multiple protein components to a density map, or bringing in a ligand, etc.

Cheers,
Oliver.
