Chain Tool

Use the Chain Tool to draw zigzag chains with the current atom and bond type. The default chain length is 1. Type the length you want into the Chain Length dialog or use the scroll bars to select the length. Chains are drawn from left to right (or in an otherwise chemically logical direction) from the arrowhead on the chain cursor.


Click right on the Chain Tool to select the default chain length.
