Hi Guy,
Instead of hiding everything first, a shorter way would be to invert 
the selection before hiding or deleting.  Say you wanted to show only 
the ligand.

Menu example:
Select.. Structure... ligand
Select... Invert (either all models or selected models, depending what 
you really want)
Actions... Atoms/Bonds (Ribbon,Surface)... hide

(you could delete instead of hiding if you really want the other atoms 

Commands example:
~disp ~ ligand

That means undisplay everything that is not ligand.  You could also do 
it the longer way with selecting, inverting, etc., and/or use "delete" 
instead of "~disp"

There are multiple ways to do everything in Chimera!  I hope this 
wasn't too confusing,
