[Chimera-users] Renumbering/reordering a session

Hi Dominique,
In Chimera you can specify the model number at time of opening if you use the "open" command.  For example:

open #5  ~/Desktop/myfile.mrc

...or if you want to use the file browser, omit the filename:

open #3

...and then the file browser will appear for choosing the file interactively.  See "open" manual page:

ChimeraX has a "rename" command that lets you change the model name and number after opening, but Chimera does not have such a command.

I hope this helps,
