[Chimera-users] opening maps into an open session by clicking file in folder

I don’t have a Catalina system to test this on at home, and it’s not quite as convenient as the double-click thing, but you may be able to drag the file from the Finder and drop it on the Chimera icon in the Dock (not on the Chimera window itself).  That certainly works on pre-Catalina systems.

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.
