To External Structure Editors

    The following copy-paste scenarios are supported in the case of external applications:

    • Single structures between external structure editors or other Office applications in MOL file format.

    • Multiple structures and other data in ChemAxon format. This format is developed for copying structure and data information in table format from Excel to other Office applications.

    Copy-Paste function works between Microsoft Excel and Marvin Sketch or any other external structure editors supporting the MDL CT format.
