Structure Renderer Options in JChem for Office Lite

Changing the structure renderer in JChem for Office Lite can be done through the context menu.

Right-click on a structure and navigate to JChem for Office > Structure Renderer.

When installing JChem for Office Lite on a new environment and no user.config files can be found, then the render is automatically set to Autodetect when these files are created.

If user.config files from a previous installation are found, the renderer and editor options stored in the files will be used.

The user.config files can be found in the following locations:

  • C:\Users\<Current User>\AppData\Roaming\ChemAxon\JChem for Outlook

  • C:\Users\<Current User>\AppData\Roaming\ChemAxon\JChem for PowerPoint

  • C:\Users\<Current User>\AppData\Roaming\ChemAxon\JChem for Word

  • C:\Users\<Current User>\AppData\Local\Microsoft_Corporation\JChemForOutlook.vsto_vsto_Path_otgxb0fych3j2qkqv0eztcinbbbotaf1\<Build Version>

  • C:\Users\<Current User>\AppData\Local\Microsoft_Corporation\JChemForPowerPoint.vsto_v_Path_ekpbzjafv2drri5srphx40rdemxeglss\<Build Version>
