I have a new installation of Chimera on a Linux box. I am working with a protein/nucleic acid complex. When I start the program with "chimera file.pdb" the ribbon representation of the structure is shown. Also, a plank representation of the nucleic acid is shown.  I have to hide the ribbon and select "Actions -> Atoms/Bonds -> Show" to see the atoms. Can someone tell me how to change the startup options so that the ribbon and planks are not automatically generated and that the atoms/bonds are shown by default?
