  4. Draw the structure in the window or load it from a file, then click OK. At the bottom of the window in the ID Assignment part, you can assign any kind of ID or textual parameter to the drawn structure, you can select SMILES or NAME from the drop-down list.
    Use this ID with the JCIDSYSStructure function, or the ShowHideStructuresActionforIDs action to alternate between this ID and the chemical structure in the same cell.

    1. If this ID is specified, the structure will be added to the cell as a JCIDSYSStructure element:
