[Chimera-users] Trouble with Volume surface and active model not aligned

Hi Phan,
I’m not sure what happened either, since your images show the “A” (active for motion) boxes in the Model Panel are checked for both the molecule and the orbitals, meaning that using the mouse should move both of them together.

You could try command:
… to put them back together.  

If that doesn’t work, you may have to start over by quitting and reopening the files.  However, if you didn’t uncheck the “A” boxes or the “Active models” boxes below the Command Line, mouse movements should always move them both together.  Maybe you accidentally had one of the A(ctive) boxes unchecked and moved the other model.  In that case, reset will work.
I hope this helps,

However, I just found out that when I try to reorient the molecule with the surface volume, they are no longer aligned. I don't know what I did to cause this. Any help is much appreciated.
