Hi Tom,

I started Chimera with a new pref file as you suggested and the problem disappeared. Thanks for the prompt help.

I notice though that your Chimera build 40415 is not the Chimera 1.10.1 production version which has build number 40427.  I think it is unlikely that your Chimrea 1.10.1 release candidate is different in a way that effects this bug but you should try the actual 1.10.1 release.

Or rather, I can type in it, because if I hit return the command gets executed, but I can’t see what I type. Any idea of what’s going on?
