Thanks a lot, that explains it well enough.

About having both, it is just that I wondering if one is supposed to be a replacement to the other.

There may be some things in Chimera we decide never to include in ChimeraX, and ChimeraX already has some capabilities that are not in Chimera.

However, I’m actually looking for a comparison that can tell what features are currently on Chimera that are *not* in ChimeraX, to consider if there is any reason to keep both in the computer.
