To clarify,  the description below of changing all carbon atoms to green with the menu is for Chimera 1.4.1.

 In Chimera 1.5 including daily builds from the last several months, you would instead choose "Actions... Color... all options" and use the resulting dialog to change the coloring target from to "atoms/bonds", perform the coloring, and and go back to coloring target "all of the above".  This is nicer because it doesn't make the user access the same menu over and over.
