Dear Eric,

Thanks for your answer.

Effectively, I get my old commands back! In fact, I launched the new 
Chimera version with the ADMIN rights so that I lost the command trace 
and also the functions saved in Favorites. If I run Chimera normally, 
there is a continuity between the releases.

Thanks again
