  • Did you know that ChemDraw includes one-stroke "hot keys" for most common drawing functions? Hot keys speed up your chemical drawing, so you can focus on chemistry rather than on making the drawing! The hot key list includes:

    • 0: sprout a single-bond
    • 2: convert single-bond to double-bond
    • n: replace with nitrogen atom (or amine group)
    • w: wedged bond (forward from plane)
    • 3: sprout a tert-butyl group
    • m: sprout a methyl group
    • b: replace with bromine atom
