The log command acts on the Log. See also: Log preferences, Command History, ChimeraX browser, usage, measurements
Options of the main log command add images and/or specified text:
log thumb html <b>Toxin from <i>Bacillus thuringiensis</i></b>
Usage: log save pathname [ executableLinks true | false ]
The log save command saves the contents of the Log as an HTML file of specified pathname (or the word browse to specify it interactively in a file browser window). The executableLinks option specifies whether the command links in the file should be executable (when the file is viewed with the ChimeraX browser) or go to command help pages. If link type is not specified, the file will contain the same type of links as in the current Log, which can be set with its context menu.
Usage: log metadata model-spec [ verbose true | false ]
The subcommand log metadata reports model metadata in the Log. Metadata is associated information read from the input file, such as literature citation, experimental method, and resolution, if applicable. Using verbose true shows all available information, sometimes the same as with verbose false (depending on what is available). Currently, metadata is read from the mmCIF and PDB input formats.
