Hi James,
There is no chance of us figuring out what happened without much more  
information.  You might try using Help... Report a Bug which would  
automatically include information about your platform and Chimera  
version, and also saying in that report exactly what you were doing  
when the problem occurred, and what happened when it occurred.  I.e.  
was the problem only on displaying objects in Chimera, were any other  
screen displays (other programs) affected, did it freeze, did you get  
any error messages, etc.

If not and everything is "Shown" according to Model Panel, the only  
other idea I have is that everything got zoomed or translated out of  
view.  You could try "Actions... Focus" to see if that brings them  
back into the view.

Other than that, it could well be some limitation of your system  
(memory?  graphics capabilities?) since Chimera can be taxing of both,  
rather than a bug per se.
