In the future, please send questions to chimera-users at cgl.ucsf.edu rather than to me directly, and put something useful about the topic in the Subject line like “showing side chains” or “pi-pi interactions.” 

I did reply to you already about the pi-pi question but perhaps you did not see the answer.  I changed the subject line because “Chimera Usage” was not descriptive.  Here is that previous answer:

To show the side chains, turn on this option of FindHBond before running the H-bond calculation: "If endpoint atom hidden, show endpoint residue”

If you click Help on the FindHBond dialog it would show you that page.  

Or if you are using the commands, command “help hbonds” would show you the “hbond” command help and its “reveal” option to do the same thing.

I hope this helps,
