[Chimera-users] Using the Chimera Tutorial

Sorry, there is no PDF version of the User's Guide (which includes  
the Tutorials).
I recommend opening the tutorial you are working on in a web browser,  
and then
using the web browser's print function.  This would also apply to any  
other parts
of the Guide you wanted in hard copy form.

The User's Guide is very nonlinear (each page has links to many other  
pages all
through the Guide), and it proved nearly impossible to produce a  
usable PDF version.
In the print form, you lose the ability to travel through the links.   
I can certainly
understand wanting a printout, however, especially if you don't have  
a large monitor.

You can write to me (meng at cgl.ucsf.edu) if you have trouble finding  
anything in
the User's Guide.  In our September release (coming soon), you will  
be able to
easily search the Guide using Help... Search Documentation in the  
Chimera menu.
Best wishes,
