Hi Noel,
Sorry, there is no command to show structure diagrams.  If the demo must do this, the only possibility (that I know of) is to do it in a python script.  In the demo, you can use the "open" command to open and execute the *.py file (the script, which would be one of your demo data files).

For example, in the "Hormone-Receptor Complex Demo" that comes with Chimera, there is an "undo" command in panel 6 that opens a python script.  The script simply closes the sequence alignment window.

I don't know python, so someone else would need to help with the script itself.
