Yes, the new release candidate is having all the important information in
the reply log file and it is shown below as Elaine indicated.
Thank you for this new feature. Maybe one could extend this a bit further?
Since these informations are already imported, one could implement them
into the "select Chain" menu, which one can access via the model panel?
Then it would be very easy to click or select a protein of interest.
Thanks for the feedback and the information. (The only bad point is that
this new version is not running on my mac wit OSX 10.7, So I have to update

Support for chain descriptions coming from mmCIF files (rather than PDB
files) was only added after the 1.10.2 release. Please try the current 1.11
release candidate and see how that works.
