CDD Vault Update: Improved Structure Editor

The ChemAxon Marvin Javascript-based structure editor we introduced earlier this year is great, but it was missing a few key features, such as support for direct copy and paste of structures. We are happy to report that this update should address the most common requests.

Copying the molecule out of the canvas in this way results in a Molfile structure representation. Pasting a structure into the canvas can be done in any supported format. You can see the full list of formats when you open the “import” interface.

Updated Import/Export functionality

This allows you to browse for an import file on your computer.

The editor will automatically recognize the file format. Note that you can now import ChemDraw CDX files.

We would like to make the Javascript-based editor the preferred choice for everyone, so please let us know if it does not support your workflow.
