No, not for any question: Report a Bug is for when you get an error message or think there might be some bug in the program, and/or when you need to attach your specific data to show the problem.
For other questions, we first encourage you to look at the Chimera User Guide
...(or search it with menu: Help... Search Documentation)
...and Chimera tutorials:
However, if you still can't figure out how to do something, or want to find out if something is possible, you can ask here on chimera-users at cgl.ucsf.edu

However, I keep returning this error "No MMTK name for atom "HD2" in standard residue ASN" I have attempted to remedy this by rewriting parts of the PDB file and importing it back in and have had no success. Is there any way to either remove NAG that is associated with these residues or change this hydrogen to something feasible? This seems to be an issue for only the ASNs on the A chain and not elsewhere on the molecule
