Show chiral flag: The visibility of the Absolute chiral flag can be turned on/off.

Show valence errors: Marking of atoms with incorrect valence can be turned on/off.

Show lone pairs: The visibility of the lone pairs can be turned on/off.

Index atoms: When checked, the atom indices (the order of the atoms put on the canvas) are displayed.

Show atom maps: When this function is active, the atom map is visible.

Use CPK colors: When checked, the atoms are displayed colored according to the Corey-Pauling-Koltun convention. The two halves of a bond between two atoms will receive the color of the atom they are connected to.

Show carbon labels: When checked, the carbon atom labels become visible.

Implicit H: Use this option to show/hide hydrogens on atoms. The following options are available from a drop-down list:
