Menus of MarvinSketch

The Menu Bar contains almost all commands that are available in MarvinSketch.

The main menus are groups of functionally similar commands shown in the following picture:

  • File Menu: contains the available file operations, such as New, Open, Save, Print, and Close. (Note that the unsigned Swing applets contain only a subset of these functions.)

  • Edit Menu: contains general clipboard operations like Copy and Paste, structure selecting and deleting commands, as well as Marvin-specific editing options.

You can change the molecule display type, background color, color scheme, error highlighting, etc. See also: Structure Display Options. The View menu also contains operations to change the graphical user interface.

  • Insert Menu: allows drawing structure templates, bonds, reaction arrows, graphics, text boxes, and more on the canvas. See also: How To Draw Graphic Objects and Text Boxes.
