Hi Francesco,

you can change the background colour in Chimera: Actions->Color->background, then Actions->Color->[choose your colour like you would for colouring atoms etc.].
Then just save your image as usual and it should be on a white background.

Also, some of the Publication Options in the Presets menu automatically set the background colour to white.

Maybe there is a command line call for changing the background as well? I don't know...

Subject: [Chimera-users] Printing on white background

When mapping protein residues around a ligand I would like to have a
printout of the enlarged binding site area, so as to put remarks by
pencil on the printout. However, on a white background, in order to
save ink. Is that a problem of working out the image (I have Gimp
only, of which I never gained expertise), or can Chimera provide
