[Chimera-users] Custom Preset Folder not detecting any scripts

Hello everyone, 

>From what I’ve gathered, I can save custom presets in a text file with Chimera commands, directly as I would type them in the Command console. So for example my custom preset file is simple, for testing purposes:

ribbon protein
color white protein
repr sphere :CAL
disp :CAL

I’ve saved the file with a .com extension (as specified here http://www.rbvi.ucsf.edu/chimera/docs/UsersGuide/preferences.html#Presets), and then indicated the directory it’s in by Clicking on Presets > Add Custom Presets … (after selecting it, I press the Save button).

>From here, I’m a bit lost. I think the file is not detected as I get no new options under the Presets tab, nor does the command `preset list c` give any output in the Reply log. Also closing and opening Chimera again does not help (although the custom preset folder is remembered if I try the previous steps).

What am I doing wrong?

Best regards,
