> Hello, 
> I need to understand precisely what Chimera do. Please look at the attached screen shoot. The arrows are anchored in point (0,0,0), and they are point in direction [(1,0,0),(0,1,0),(0,0,1)] red, yellow and blue respectively.
> I set my volume to minimum (grey cube), I checked "Show outline box using color", and I noticed it does not cover the shape of my volume.
> There are "margins" in the top, and the bottom visible in the image and much smaller on the sides.
> Why they are there? What is its exact size? Where does volume actually begins in the (0,0,0), or slightly below that point?
