How do I add a Chem3D model to a Power Point document so that I can control it like I do in Chem3D?
You can add a Chem3D ActiveX control (9.0 and above only) to a Power Point document.
1) Open a blank slide in PowerPoint.
2) Select menu item: View > Toolbars > Control Toolbox
3) On the Control Toolbox toolbar that appears, click the "More Controls" button at the far right of the toolbar.
4) From the dropdown list, choose item "CS Chem3D Control X.0" where "X" is the version number of Chem3D you have installed. For example, choose "CS Chem3D Control 9.0" if version 9 is the latest version you have installed.
5) Now use the mouse to draw a box on the slide. This box that you have drawn will hold the Chem3D control.
Now you need to insert a Chem3D document into the control window.
1) Click the menu item: Tools > Macro > Microsoft Script Editor
2) A separate Microsoft application is launched.
3) In the document that opens, scroll down towards the end of this document and you should find the following line:
Add a path to the .c3xml file between the quotes for value. For example:
Save this document, and then close and return to PowerPoint. The model does not appear until you first put the slide into Slide Show mode. Once you play the slide show, you will see the model, and be able to use the Chem3D controls on it from within PowerPoint.
