[Chimera-users] Chimera-X

Hi Hernando,

This seems like a Qt window toolkit bug.  We do not observe this on Windows 10 or any other operating system, although reports on the web suggest Qt can sometimes get confused about the window position if you minimize or maximize the window.  Does it fix itself if you manually resize the ChimeraX window or move the window?  You can send email to chimerax-bugs at cgl.ucsf.edu <mailto:chimerax-bugs at cgl.ucsf.edu> to make a bug report.  It will be hard for us to do anything about it if we cannot make it happen on one of our machines.

I.e. the icons are active but the cursor has to be placed not on top of the icon but somewhere else close by (below).  This occurs  with the latest daily build or the latest alpha version. I am running it in a Windows 10 laptop.

When I use ChimeraX, these icons always look the same and can be clicked, even when nothing is open.  It doesn’t require selecting, unless you want to limit the action to some subset of what is open.  I assume you are referring to the icons described here:

I managed to get it to work in Chimer-X once  but  now when I click  the appropriate icon on the top in chimera-X menu this icon and most others  (except the one to open files)  are  inactive. Is there anything that I should do to activate these icons?  I am I missing something? I tried selecting the model that was  opened but that didn't help.
