Save/Load Settings

Save/Load GUI Settings (.MRV, .PDF format)

Allows storing and loading of display options like background color, font type, stereo labels, atom indices, and so on, in addition to the chemical structure itself.

This option can only be used with MRV and PDF formats and it is selected by default.

Save/Load Zoom Factor (.MRV format)

Stores and loads the zooming scale of the structures.

This option can only be used with the MRV format.

Zoom to Scaffold on Load (Sketch only)

Sets the zooming scale to Scaffold if the loaded file contains defined R-groups, so the R-group definitions might not be seen on the canvas without scrolling.

The Zoom level drop-down list on the General Toolbar is supplemented with Scaffold and R1, R2, R3 only when there are defined R-groups.

Without R-group definitions, the zooming scale for the loaded structures will not be modified, the last zooming scale will be used.

When this option is switched off in the Preferences menu, MarvinSketch opens the new file with the last zoom level.

Save BOM to New MRV and MDL Files

Saves Byte Order Mark (BOM) to new files.
