Hi Janet!
It looks correct -- however, the molmap symmetry options were added after the 1.5.3 release, so the issue is probably that you need to get a newer version of Chimera (a daily build).

Changes since last production release, 1.5.3:

The main reason I'm not using multiscale models is so that I can create a single surface for several of the different chains in the capsid.  I've been having a little trouble getting this to work, and I'm not sure if I'm doing it correctly:
