Hi Chris,
	Yet another way to do this, assuming you know the approximate x,y

the 2dlabels command (http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/current/docs/UsersGuide/midas/2dlabels.html 
).  Assuming that your Molecule variable is 'm' then m.name is the  
molecule name (as shown in the Model Panel) and str(m) gives the same  
text as the help balloon would if the mouse were hovered over the
