[Chimera-users] saving color palette

Hi Jeff,

   The color editor dialog shown with the "co" keyboard shortcut is the 
same as the one you see when pressing on color buttons.  The colors 
shown at the bottom of that dialog are saved in the preferences files 
automatically.  If you wanted to preserve them you could copy your 
~/.chimera/preferences file to a file named "preferences" say in a 
directory with the figures you made with those colors.  If you start 
Chimera in that directory (from a terminal window) it will use the file 
named "preferences" in that directory if it exists instead of the 
default ~/.chimera/preferences.

   I've added a request to support multiple color palettes to our 
Chimera plans page (will appear tomorrow).
