I guess I've never run into a situation where someone wants to remove/
delete a named selection! Can you describe why you want/need to do
this? I would consider making it easier to do if whatever situation
you describe seems like it might be run into by others.
Anyway, I'm assuming that "chimera file" means a Chimera session
file. To remove named selections from a session file you would edit
it with a text editor (that can handle long lines) and look for a line
that looks like this:
savedSels = [[sel-name1, [bunch of numbers...], [sel-name2, [more
To remove sel-name1 from the save selection, change the line to:
savedSels = [[sel-name2, [more numbers], etc.]
To remove all selections:
saveSels = 
Don't just remove the line entirely. You'll get an error restoring
the session if you do that.
