[Chimera-users] rotating items in chimera

Hi Jeff,

  The "Orient" button on the volume viewer dialog changes the rotation 
of the volume data shown in that dialog to the standard orientation 
(data x axis on screen x axis, data y  axis on screen y axis, data z 
axis out of screen).  I use that with keyboard shortcuts x9, y9 and z9 
which rotate about the x, y, and z axes respectively by 90 degrees.

  It would not be hard to add a command that just resets the rotation 
part, not translation, of an orientation saved with "savepos" (and 
assuming a center of rotation at the center of the bounding box, say).
