ChimeraX Preferences

A user's ChimeraX preferences are stored along with the command history and file history in a standard platform-dependent location (for example, ~/Library/Applications/ChimeraX and subdirectories on a Mac; see python appdirs).

Choosing UCSF ChimeraX... Preferences from the menu shows the main Preferences dialog, with sections:

Save saves the current settings, Reset replaces the current settings with the initial (“factory”) defaults, and Restore replaces the current settings with those previously saved; if the Buttons affect all categories option is checked, these buttons apply to all sections of the Preferences dialog, not just the section currently shown.
