Hi Boaz,
I only meant it as an "in the meanwhile" alternative, not to contradict your suggestion (which I agree with).

The rapid access is a wonderful feature, however, every 'open' action in Chimera gets recorded in the rapid access list (pdb, smiles, apbs files etc.). Quite often I open a pdb for inspection or something else and close the session after a short while, without doing too much work. I don't want to delete the pdb, nor do I want to save the session, and if I do save the short session I don't want to delete it since at this moment I don't know whether I'll continue to work on it in the future.  There are other examples of this kind. As a result, the rapid access list gets longer and longer which makes it quite tedious to look for the sessions that you really want to re-open and which have been executed a while ago. I hope I've made myself clear.
