CMview is designed to work in conjunction with XMview. It contains most of the visualization features of XMview, but not all of the options. There are no export options, and no save options. The general idea behind CMview, is to use XMview to set up and create a project file for the molecular structures you are interested in, and then CMview is used for the final visualization.

To do this, a chemist would save whatever they are viewing in XMview as a project file (easily editable ascii file), which includes not only the name of the molecule(s) that you are viewing, but also position, orientation, viewing style, background color, etc. That way whatever was last seen in XMview on the desktop, should be exactly what you see in CMview.
