That looks like some very old version of Chimera. There should be many more entries in that menu, including Write DMS. Maybe even though you downloaded a newer version, what you are starting up is old?? You can check version with command "version" or menu: Help... About UCSF Chimera. I doublechecked in Chimera 1.6.2, 1.7 and daily build (1.8) on my machine and they all have Write DMS in that menu.
