Hi Dina!
It will work if your structure is associated with your sequence alignment.  Then in the dialog where you choose template, it will list the name of the associated sequence.  So pick that one.  Then, when you execute there may be a message “could not discern PDB ID” or something like that, but it will still run the calculation.  It is only trying to find the PDB ID to be able to show more information in the template-choosing area of the dialog.

I tried it just now on some structure that was not opened from the PDB, and it worked to produce a model from that template, so hopefully it will work for you too.  You can check that the job is running in the Task Panel (opened by clicking the small “i” button near the lower right corner of the Chiemra window).
I hope this helps,
