[Chimera-users] Any option for terminating minimization without losing prior iterations?

If you are on a system where you started Chimera from a terminal window (usually Linux, but sometimes Mac) you may be able to get Chimera to interrupt a minimization without crashing by typing your interrupt character (usually control-C) in the terminal window.

>> Hi Thomas,
>> There is no "restart" if you interrupt the minimization, but you will still have the coordinates of the last update (you don't lose everything).  The calculation runs on your own computer.  You can see the minimization help by clicking the Help button on the GUI, or using command "help minimize".
