Dear Chandan,

The command "log_open" will start writing a log file of events happening.

If you want a specific name for the logfile you write "log_open myfile.pml"

In that file the commands you type will be saved, as well as actions from menus (not sure how many, but I think most of them).

Hope this helps.
Best regards,

Dear PyMOL users,

I was just wandering to know that does PyMOL saves the history of the commands typed?

If so, please let me know how can it be done.
