hi Elaine - thanks for the suggestion, I'll look into using Modeller directly.

Hi Tom,
Sorry, the simple Chimera-Modeller interface only provides a few basic options and does not allow for modeling multiple chains simultaneously.  It can be done using Modeller directly, I believe, but that is a less user-friendly process.
