Maybe you didn't know that you can export a file from Chimera to open in ChimeraX, so it's not like you would need to redo everything to make a similar figure in ChimeraX.
If you get a new daily build of Chimera, the export will include the 2D labels as well as the atomic structures (atoms/ribbons). See Chimera menu: File... Export Scene, or command "export"
The export doesn't work for volume models (density maps) yet, but at least what I can see in your screenshot is atomic models, which are included.
I hope this helps,

Report a Bug and attach your Chimera session file in which it looks like the screenshot, but image saving gives a different result. Include a brief description, including image-saving parameters you used, and your e-mail address if you want a response through the bug system.

Of course I will try this in ChimeraX if I am not able to fix the figure, but the image took quite some work, so I'd hate redoing it... Or I could use screenshot I guess... But certainly this is some sort of bug.
