Tutorial 1 – Draw a structure in a document using Chem4Word

This video tutorial shows you how to draw a structure in a Microsoft Word document using the Chem4Word addin.

Here’s the video


  • Clicking the Chemistry ribbon’s “Draw Structure” button to open a structure editor in which you can draw your structure.
  • Click the OK button and Chem4Word will search ChemSpider to see if we can find a name for your structure, that you can use that name elsewhere in your document;  we’ll show you how in a separate tutorial.
  • Edit the name that was found or just leave it as it is

You now have your first structure in your Microsoft Word document!

There are other ways to add a structure to a Microsoft Word document using the Chem4Word addin, and we’ll show you these over the coming weeks. The next tutorial shows you how to edit existing structures in Microsoft Word documents that were created using the Chem4Word addin.
