I'm running Chimera on my mac. When I have a protein structure from a PDB file open and running, and I try to open a 2nd one it just overlaps the two structures in one window/session. I would like to view the two structures separately in two separate windows.

Hi, I ran into this problem a few years ago and this link helped me out. I was hoping it was still valid and it is! This is the section you will want to read: On Mac OS X, Chimera can be started by clicking the chimera icon or by dragging and dropping certain file types on the chimera icon. The drag-and-drop approach currently works for the Chimera web data (.chimerax) and PDB (.pdb) file types. Chimera can also be started from the Terminal command line:

chimera_install_dir/Contents/MacOS/chimera [options] [input1 input2 ...] Bracketed arguments are optional. The default chimera_install_dir is /Applications/Chimera.app. This is one way to run multiple instances of the same Chimera installation on Mac; it can also be done with an icon. Chimera for Mac OS X (X Windows) requires an X server to be installed and running. Starting this version of Chimera will automatically start the X server if it is not already running.
