Hi Oliver,

  This has long been a requested feature.

And I agree it would be useful.  If Chimera packages up all the needed maps and the session file in a zip archive this would be convenient.  You can of course do this right now by hand, only it isn’t so convenient.  Unfortunately this has never reached a high enough priority relative to other enhancements we are working on, so it has not been implemented.  It is more likely to get into Chimera 2 than Chimera 1.
