Hi Lesheng,
	I'm sorry to report that there is no general-purpose undo action in 
Chimera.  For example, if you delete atoms (with 
Actions..Atoms/Bonds..delete or the "delete" command), they are 
permanently gone and can only be "recovered" by reading the original 
structure file back into Chimera.
	My only suggestion here is that if you have put a lot of effort into 
getting a particular look for your structure, that you save a session 
so that you don't have to start from scratch if you make an error.
