[Chimera-users] Keep path when opening chimera from command line

Dear Chimera experts, 

I am working with Mac OS X version 10.11.1 and Chimera 1.10.2

I use Chimera to visualize MD trajectories. Usually I launch the program through the command line. I’ve got a pretty deep hierarchy of directories to keep my data organized, so I’ve been trying to look for a way to make Chimera keep the path of the directory where I launched it from, with no success. 

What I mean is, if I launch it from a given directory and then try to load MD NetCDF files with the “MD Movie” option, is there a way for it to show me the files in the directory where I opened it from?. Because now what it does is show me the ones from the last time I used this. 

Also, is there a way to load the topology and trajectories directly from the command line? I have looked for this option but haven’t found anything. 

Thanks for your help
