Molecules disappear off screen and their coordinates change excessively when performing local translations or rotations. What can I do to fix this behavior?

This can happen when the center of rotation is a long way from the object being rotated. You can set the center of rotation (and of the view) by right-clicking on an atom, or you can use the Advanced Transformations dialog box (Edit → Transform → Advanced) to set the center for transformation.

You can also reset the view with View → Reset (or the Reset View toolbar button) in Maestro before doing the local transformation. If this does not work, you can fix it by displaying the Command Input Area (Window → Command Input Area, or press Ctrl+Shift+I on Linux or Windows, ⌘⇧I on Mac), and then typing the command emptyviewreset and pressing Enter.
