When you would like to edit a Marvin OLE object in an MS Office document, MarvinSketch can be opened in a couple of ways depending on the configuration of the OLE server.
By default, when the OLE object is edited the editor opens embedded into the MS Office application. If you would like to see MarvinSketch in a standalone window during editing the OLE object, you have to modify the OLE server settings in the registry.
C:\Program Files\ChemAxon\Shared\MarvinOLE folder, you will find different registry entries that can help you to modify the registry:
Just install the desired
.reg file to modify the edit settings of the OLE server as described below.
.regfile is located and right-click the file.
regedit.exeto select it. By default, it is located in the
regedit.exe, submit the Open With dialog to run the desired
.regfile with regedit.exe.
Marvin OLE represents a multi-document interface, which means that the users can edit more than one single document at a time. When using standalone mode all opened documents can be seen in child windows hosted in the main window frame.
From version 5.12 a new setting is available for both administrators and users: for setting that these OLE documents should be opened in maximized window state. (Maximized window state is when the active document window overlaps, covers all other document windows.)
Alt+Tab helps to switch among all opened documents as normally, but the active document child gets into focus with full size in the host.
Registry key for this feature is as follows:
[Maximized = DWORD value]
0x1 value means
True (display in a maximized way) and
0x0 value is the default
False (display in a normal way)
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ChemAxon\MarvinOLE\Settingswhich overrides the administrator value.
