Fetch by ID

Files can be retrieved from various databases and opened in Chimera with File... Fetch by ID. Internet connectivity is required to fetch files over the Web. The command open can also fetch files by ID.

A database and corresponding identifier (ID code) must be indicated:

Clicking Fetch retrieves the indicated data and dismisses the dialog (although there is a checkbox option to Keep dialog up after Fetch). Clicking Web Page opens the home page of the chosen database if no ID code has been entered, or the specific page for the entry if a valid ID code has been entered.

Close dismisses the dialog without retrieving the data. Help brings up this manual page in a browser window.
