Dear Ishu,
You probably just need to get Chimera 1.7 (daily build or snapshot). PipesAndPlanks has been improved significantly since the production release (1.6).  The newer versions are available here:

If you use the Help menu, it should match your downloaded version pretty well.  If you view the manual on the web, it might be for a different version than what you have downloaded.

List of changes since the production release:

I hope this helps,
