I think the subject of the message is explicit enough...
Perhaps the option of having a default color different than cyan for
hydrogen bonds already exists, but I have failed to find it. I have this
line in my .chimera/preferences file:

 'FindHBonds': {'line width': 2.0},

So I tried to include something like 'color: (0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0)' (or
bond color or H-bond color...) in the FindHBonds dictionary, alas
without success.

Let me give some rationale: I prefer having a white background, against
which cyan is not really very visible when the structure gets complex.
Not to me eyes at least.

Thank you!

Best regards,
