[Chimera-users] Issues with writesel

Hi Kevin,
It is unclear what your current working directory is…the file would go to wherever that is if you do not give a path.  Try giving a full pathname in the command so you can be sure where the file is going.  E.g. for me on a mac, could be:

writesel /Users/meng/Desktop/test

Alternatively, use menu: Actions… Write List and then browse to the desired output file location.
I hope this helps,
