[Chimera-users] Unable to Change Lighting of Side Chains / Atoms

I recall a Mac graphics driver bug that made atoms look black or very dark.  Use Chimera menu Help / Report a Bug… so we can see what version of everything you are using and attach an image of what the atoms look like to the bug report.

Thus when I get the protein (in ribbon format) to look appealing and shiny, the metal atoms in the protein remain black. Changing colors or lighting do not make any difference. The same is true for the side chains as well. This also occurs on several different sequences, so it is not just the one file.
