GChemPaint vs. ChemDraw compatibility

Bernd Speiser
Hi,

I am on Linux (OpenSuse 13.2) and I have just started to use GChemDraw,
and one of the scenarios interesting to me is to exchange chemical
drawings with colleges who use ChemDraw as their drawing software.

It seems that I can clearly import a file from ChemDraw (cdx) into
GChemPaint. I can modify the contents.
However, when exporting in the cdx format I loose some content, e.g.
reaction arrows and text between the molecule drawings (visible OK after
import, but disappeared after export to cdx).

Is there some way to resolve this problem, or is it a bug in GChemPaint?

Best regards
Bernd

Hi,

This is a missing feature. GChemPaint only exports molecules to cdx (or
cdxml) for the time being. It is on my TODO list, but time and
motivation are missing, unfortunately.

Best regards,
Jean
