Copy and Paste

Data, including structural information in Microsoft Office applications, can be copied and pasted inside and between MS Office applications and external structure editors.


It is possible to copy single structures from Office applications to the same Office application, another Office application, and an external structure editor.

In the case of multiple structures with or without data in tables, it is possible to copy the structures to the same Office application and another Office application.

The following methods can be used for copying and pasting:

  • Using the Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V keyboard shortcuts.

  • Using the JChem Copy and Paste buttons, available through the ribbon or the context menu.

It is possible to combine the ribbon buttons with the keyboard shortcuts. For example, copying with one of the ribbon buttons and pasting with Ctrl+V.
