[Chimera-users] saving color palette

Hi Jeff,
I forgot to mention that the while the "colordef command file"  
approach does not automatically place the colors in the Color Editor,  
you can show a predefined color in that tool by entering its name in  
the "Color name" field.  Although this field usually shows a Tk color  
code, it accepts the name of any known color, either built into  
Chimera or previously defined with colordef.

This is not quite as nice as having the colors appear automatically  
in the palette, I concede.  I use colordef command files when I  
intend to use those color names in other commands rather than via the  
Color Editor.
