[Chimera-users] color-by-element in v. 2172

Hi Boaz,
It is the same procedure as before.  However, it sounds like
the coloring target is set to something that does not include
atoms and bonds.  Look in the Actions... Color menu; the default
is "all of the above" which would include "atoms/bonds."  However,
if the coloring target is set to "ribbons" or "background"
(for example) there is nothing to color by element.

This is most likely what is happening, since with the 
"all of the above" setting, the copy of 1.2172 I'm using 
does color by element as before.

I hope this helps,
