Drawing tools in ChemDraw

Hi,

I've been a ChemDraw user for 6 years now and think it is an absolutely fantastic tool. In addition to chemical structures, I make quite a few figures/diagrams within ChemDraw so use the drawing tools a lot. There are a few tools that I've always thought would be really useful to have - are there any plans to incorporate any of the following into further versions of ChemDraw?

  • An eyedropper colour tool.
  • Some kind of basic colour gradient tool for shading shapes.
  • More shapes in the Drawing Elements tab (specifically, triangles!).
  • Some kind of tool for constructing tables.
  • An automatic grid organisation tool (e.g. for scope tables, you currently have to use a mixture of align, group and distribute but this becomes a bit of a faff when you have more than a few dozen compounds).

Cheers!

Thank you for all the detailed feedback, those are all very nice improvement suggestions. The eyedropper is certainly already on the list for an upcoming version. For the rest, we'll take everything into account!

Some nice suggestions. I'd second the gradient colour tool and perhaps, instead of more shapes, just make the ones that exist editable?
