  • Do you need more than a minute to draw ONE small molecule?
  • Do you make copies of molecules using Ctrl + C / Ctrl + V as a shortcut?
  • Do you switch to ACS 1996 style settings every time you launch ChemDraw?
  • Do you manually adjust the components of your reactions after drawing?

If you answered “Yes” to at least one of those questions, we can help! Come along on the 14th July to see what you didn’t know you could accomplish. We know that you will learn something that will improve your productivity 5-10X.
