Hi Durga,
Try just saving the file as plain text, with a temporary name.  After you save the file, however, you can rename it with the extension .cmd, and when the mac asks you if you are sure you want to change to that name, say that you are!

It is trying to figure out the file types for you, but you can use this method to overrule its guess and use whatever name you want.  I hope this helps,

I have a MacBook Pro, which I just got this recent August, and downloaded the latest Chimera version for the Mac. I'm trying to save the commands in a separate file, like TextEdit, but I don't know what type of file to save it as. I'm hoping to be able to open the file through Chimera to play the movie. I tried saving the commands as "movie.cmd" but TextEdit is not allowing me to save that type of file. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
