Hello Tom,

Yes, I am using macOS Catalina. Thanks for letting me know. I will use ChimeraX in future sessions.

Hi Dominique,

Are you using macOS Catalina?  We have seen that a macOS update broke opening files by double clicking on the file icons in Finder.  Unfortunately we have no funding to maintain Chimera so only critical fixes are made and I don't think this is going to count as critical.  Our newer ChimeraX software opens the files correctly and all our effort is towards developing it with a 1.0 release coming next month.

I used to be able to open a map from any folder by clicking the file into an open chimera session but now it either opens in a separate chimera session or not at all. Is there a way to fix that?
