[Chimera-users] Command line history

Hi Damien,
	If I understand correctly, before upgrading you saved your command history into a file named chimera.cmd.  After upgrading, you want to get that history back into the new version.  Is that correct?  If so, the good news is that you don't have to do anything like that in order to preserve your command history -- it is preserved automatically.  The command history is not saved in the Chimera installation itself but is saved in the user's preferences file.
	So just start the new version of Chimera and check the command history (click on the disclosure triangle to the right of the command line).  If it contains your old commands, you're golden.  If not for some reason (maybe you went to a new machine?) send me an email and I'll give you instructions for getting your chimera.cmd commands into the preferences file.  It's a little tricky because the file formats aren't the same.
