[Chimera-users] Problem with HEADER keyword in PDBs

Hi everyone,

I believe I found a problem with the >HEADER< keyword in PDB files.
Some programs may create pdbs with the header keyword specifying the origin or a name of a chain or other metadata with the coordinates below.
PyMol understands this keyword and colors chains that have identical chain ID (see example attached) in multiple colors while chimera interprets all as one chain.
