How do I select / deselect structures or parts of structures in the ChemDraw mobile app?
There are several ways to accomplish this.
A double tap on an empty portion of the screen will select ALL objects. Similarly, if anything is selected, double tapping on an empty region will deselect everything. A double tap is used to deselect so you do not accidentally deselect everything when incorrectly tapping just outside of an object.
Double tapping on an atom or bond will select the entire molecule. Individual atoms or bonds (or other objects) can be selected or deselected by tapping on them.
Larger groups of atoms and bonds can be selected using the Lasso and Marquee tools. Using these tools you can select regions of the document which are of interest, and they will be dynamically selected.
The Invert Selection button can be used to reverse the selection, to produce a complementary selection.
