Hi Martin,
You must be looking at the "development"  documentation online.  The  
Coulombic Surface Coloring tool was added after release 1.3, so to use  
it you would want to get a Chimera daily build (just give that  a  
different name or put it in a different place if you want to also keep  
1.3 around).

Daily build download:

Here is the list of what's new since the production release:
