Hi everyone,

I am using Chimera 1.4.1 build 30365 on linux2 with windowing x11 and I'm struggling with these two issues:

1.) Opening marker sets: I would like to open a marker set from a previous session, but when I try to open the marker set in the Volume Tracer I get the following reply:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "CHIMERA/lib/python2.5/site-packages/Pmw/Pmw_1_3/lib/PmwBase.py", line 1747, in __call__
  File "CHIMERA/share/chimera/baseDialog.py", line 328, in command
  File "CHIMERA/share/chimera/baseDialog.py", line 543, in OK
  File "CHIMERA/share/OpenSave/__init__.py", line 159, in Apply
  File "CHIMERA/share/VolumePath/gui.py", line 260, in open_file_dialog_cb
AttributeError: 'Volume_Path_Dialog' object has no attribute 'open_marker_set'
AttributeError: 'Volume_Path_Dialog' object has no attribute 'open_marker_set'

  File "CHIMERA/share/VolumePath/gui.py", line 260, in open_file_dialog_cb

I've tried opening marker sets which were generated with the same Chimera build and with older builds, but I get the same reply.

2.) Movie Recorder: I can't access the Frame Options or the Movie Options. In earlier builds pressing the triangle symbol next to Frame Options or Movie Options would expand the menu and display your options, but now pressing the triangle does not change anything and nothing expands. 

Any ideas, suggestions, what I could try? Thanks a lot and big cheers from Boston,
