Hi Thomas,
Commands can be strung together on one line with semicolon (;).

It is mentioned in the "command file" documentation, but I realize the documentation is large and it can be hard to find what you want!

In command files is the more common use, but you can also use the semicolon separator when typing into the command line. The purpose is to suppress display of intermediate states.

So the question is if it is possible to copy & paste multiple commands in a single line into the Chimera command line interface. Alternatively, is the any "end of line" character that designates the end a of one command and the start of the next one?
