ViewDock is a UCSF Chimera extension for viewing outputs from several docking software packages. There is a tutorial on the Chimera web pages.

Keyboard shortcuts

Using ViewDock requires a fair amount of clicking and mouse movement. To reduce these you can use this Chimera accelerators script, written by Tom Goddard ([1] Chimer user list discussion):

To use, enable Chimera keyboard shortcuts and load the new file.

Accelerators "cv" (Viable), "cd" (Delete), "cx" (Purge), work like clicking the radio buttons in the ViewDock dialog box - they change the status of the selected compound. Accelerators "cn" and "cp"
