Just worked out how to open the mtz files in v1.4.1 which is great (and I now know what the volume tab is). Nice work
How can I extend the map around my protein as it appears to cross the boundaries of the asu?
When I ray trace, the map disappears...so we can't use the excellent graphics
I am using both a phenix generated mtz (works with File>open mtz) and a ccp4 generated one (File > open)

You can't... easily. This is something we need to add to PyMOL. For
the time being you need to use symexp or (A>Generate>Symmetry Mates)
to extend the protein into the density. Please file this as an RFE on
the open-source tracker to help raise priority on this.

Due to technicalities it's disabled by default. To enable it do,
before ray tracing. We still have more work to do on the volumes. And,
we _really_ appreciate feedback like this from our users--so please
keep it coming.
For a final, smoother volume-based representation you can turn up the
volume_layers setting to something like 1024 or 2048 if your video
card can handle it.
