[Chimera-users] Assigning id to a chain with no id

Hi Aleena,
	If you have some structures open with blank IDs that you want to change to 'A', I believe the Python code is:

from ChangeChainIDs import changeChains
from chimera import openModels, Molecule
changeChains(openModels.list(modelTypes=[Molecule]), [(' ', 'A')])

I tried using 'changechain' command but I am getting error messages because I don't have any specific from-chain id. I don't know what exactly to give as from-chain id or is there any other command that could help me?
