[Chimera-users] OBJ files are exported too small and won't open on other programs.

I am a relatively new and inexperienced user of Chimera.  I am having a difficult time working with obj files.  The Scenes I'm exporting as obj's end up having a very small file size (67 bytes in one case) and are being processed very quickly.  The resulting file won't open successfully on any program that should understand an obj. Stl's are fine.

Conversely, when I try to open an obj file into Chimera, it asks me to manually "Designate the File Type" as though it doesn't know what to do with it.

Can someone please suggest what features I'm missing so that I can successfully export an OBJ?  I'm also interested in how best to handle color information.

Thank you!
