Draw Chains

    You can draw carbon chains easily by selecting Insert > Chain or clicking on the Draw Chain icon on the Tools toolbar.

    To draw curved chains, click on the Curved Chain icon. Simply drag the cursor in any direction to start drawing. The number of carbon atoms can be increased or decreased by dragging the mouse. The chain drawing direction follows the mouse movements.
