Hi Amedee,

  I agree that would be helpful for sharing Chimera sessions.  I've made a feature request entry in our database for it.  Another related solution to the same problem that I've thought about implementing for years is to have an option to embed all the density maps within the session file so the session is self-contained.  I think your suggestions of putting the session and copying map files in the same directory is better in ways, since then the person receiving the data can easily open the individual map data sets if they choose to.
