Thanks, Warren.  That's exactly what I was looking for.  It amazing how you come up with solutions and program them into PyMOL way before users every ask the questions.

Unless things have changed, shouldn't it read 'scene F3, store, view=0'?

Great work.

Yes, you can do this two ways by passing "view=0" to the scene store


(1) save the scene without saving view information:

scene store, F3, view=0


(2) recall the scene while ignoring any view information:

scene F1, view=0
