[Chimera-users] How to save a dragged pdb

See the "Save relative to" near the bottom of the PDB Save dialog.  In your image it is saving relative to #0, a pdb file.  You need to change the model in that line to the map model.

You can check in the Model Panel (menu: Favorites... Model Panel) to see which models are which numbers.
I hope this helps,
