[Chimera-users] Can't open IMOD .mod file

Hi Luiza,

Our newer program ChimeraX can read points from imod files.  You have to open it with the "contours true" option, for example,

	open ~/Desktop/particles.imod contours true



I just tested it and it gave an error.  I fixed the code so tonight's ChimeraX build will be able to read IMOD points and contour lines.  The daily builds are below the releases on the download page
