Marvin JS Tips and Tricks

Combo Buttons

To see all available drawing tools, open the combo boxes, these are marked with a black triangle at the lower-right corner of the tool. The main combo button preserves the latest selection.


For drawing complicated molecules, you can use the Drawing tool, which enables you to create bonds without changing tools or even releasing the mouse button. For more information, see Bond.

Context Menus

You can find more functionalities in context menus. You can open context menus by right-clicking on certain parts of your structures (for example atom, bond, R-group definition, and so on). For more information, see Context Menus.

View Settings

By using the options available in the View settings it is possible to specify how structures are displayed. For more information, see View Settings Dialog.
