I'm using JChem for Excell 126.96.36.199 and Office 2007. I observed that linear structures are being drawn from SMILES in various directions. One of them are being drawn horizontally, others vertically. Is there a possibility to fix it so they were all presented horizontally? I might edit each structure and rotate it, but it's inconvenient for larger databases.
Thanks for Your help in advance!
could you send us some sample SMILES strings, and a screenshot of the problem?
attached are SMILES and screenshot showing the effect of importing them and converting into structures. You can see that the first structure is placed horizontally, while the others - vertically. They would be much better visible if they fit their data cells.
well we use the underlying ChemAxon API to generate 2D coordinates for the structrure represented by the SMILES string. I have asked the team who created the algorithm to gives some scientific explanation to this.
