Elaine's suggestions are all excellent.  There is one further option:  
make the label transparent.  Do this by selecting a distance 
(control-drag across a distance) and then use up arrow to select all 
distances.  Bring up the Selection Inspector by clicking on the button 
at the lower right of the Chimera window.  Make sure you are inspecting 
"Pseudobond" and use the color well next to "label color" to change the 
label color to transparent.
