Hi Murpholino,
It sounds like you answered your own question, since you say the map opened.  What is the problem?  Does it look weird?  For us to say anything, you would need to be more specific about what you are trying to do, or what behaviors you are trying to get.

Chimera and Coot are two different programs, so the way they behave is different, and one may have features the other does not.

Since you said “opens nicely over the protein” in Coot, maybe you need to use Chimera command “vop cover”
