[Chimera-users] how to make rotation slabs smaller

There is currently no option to control the slab size for slabs made
with "measure rotation #0 #1 showslabs true". The size of the slab
depends on the distance of the center of the bounding box of the first
model (#0) to the rotation axis. The slab passes through that center point.
You can edit Chimera file
changing the line
e = 2 # Factor for enlarging square
to produce a smaller slab (e.g. e = 1) the restart Chimera.
I'll add a feature request to allow the measure rotation command to take
a slab size option.
