[Chimera-users] a problem with silhouettes

Those little ellipses scattered all over are the end-caps of the
ribbon helices being drawn in the wrong place. That is a bug. You
should use Help / Report a Bug to send us a report that will include
your graphics driver version and operating system. I could imagine this
bug happening in Chimera daily builds because I have changed the ribbon
drawing code. But it is surprising to see it in the Chimera 1.6
production release. If it is in a daily build try the latest daily
build. If it is in Chimera 1.6 it is most likely a graphics driver
bug. You can try to update your graphics driver or use a different
computer to make this image.

>> Dear Chimera users,
>> I am trying to create an image for a publication using Chimera 1.6.1.
>> Whenever I turn on "silhouette" dark spots appear on the screen and on the saved image. They seem totally random but they move along with the structure when rotated. When I zoom on them they look like small "umbrella-shaped" discs. The "show shadows" option is turned off.
>> Does anybody know what are those spots and how to get rid of them?
>> Thank you very much for any help.
