Hi Jeff,

  Not sure whether you mean the color palette in the "Color Editor" 
dialog or the "Surface Color" dialog.  The first one comes up when you 
press any color button in Chimera and has a row of (initially black) 
squares at the bottom that you can drag colors into.  It's values are 
saved in your Chimera preferences files, ~/.chimera/preferences.  The 
Surface Color dialog only saves the colors in sessions when the color 
map is being used to color some surface.  Neither of these have the 
option to save or load colors from a separate file, though I agree that 
would be useful.
