[Chimera-users] Renaming chains in a PDB file with two chains

Thanks for all the answers you give to our questions.
They are very helpful as I learn more everyday. I have a question.
Is there anyway to rename a chain in a PDB file through the GUI? I have
a few PATCHDOCK generated PDB files with two different chains named
under Chain 'A' as #0.1 and #0.2. When I try to get the list of
hydrogen bonds between these two chains, the chain name 'A' appears
for all of the h-bonding pairs. So, I want to have them named Chain A
and Chain B for easier analysis than scratching my head figuring out
which h-bond pair is between the chains or with in the chain. I am
attaching the pdb file. Please help me.
(I thought of renaming the chains in the PDB file going through the PDB
header (text file) and manually changing the name. But I am not a
expert if anything goes wrong.)
