[Chimera-users] Multiple Docking Using Chimera

Hi Turki Sobahy,
Chimera only knows how to read the various pieces of information if you are using one of docking output formats it understands.  These formats are listed in the ViewDock manual page:

I don’t know what docking program you are using or what format of output you are reading into Chimera, so I can’t really say anything other than it should be in one of those formats. It seems like it must be in one of those formats if you are getting a ViewDock table. It might be that the names are read but not initially shown in the table.  In that case you might be able to show them by just choosing some option from that dialog’s “Column” menu.  If not, we would need an example file including a few ligands to be able say anything else.

I hope this helps,
