  • ChemDraw comes with numerous "style sheets", which are analogous to Microsoft Word's style sheets. In both types of style sheets, you can change the font size, font color, line spacing, and so on, and can save styles. In addition, in the ChemDraw style sheet, you can specify bond lengths, chain angles, fonts for atom labels, and numerous other chemical characteristics.

    This video demonstrates creating a style sheet with the following characteristics:

    • 2x2 document size (multiple pages)
    • Yellow background with blue text
    • My text in page header and page footer
    • Chain angle 90 degrees (default is 120 degrees)
    • Changing bond spacing to look nice with chain angle
