This ID can be used later with JCIDSYSStructure function or ShowHideStructuresActionforIDs action, which provide the opportunity to flip-flop between this ID and the chemical structure in the same cell. If this ID is specified the structure will be added to the cell as a JCIDSYSStructure element:




  1. If you don't specify an ID the structure will be added as a basic JCSYSStructure element:



  1. The structure can be added to the surrounding cells by dragging. Select the cell which contains the structure. Click on the right-lower corner of the selected cell, keep pressed the mouse button and drag the mouse down or sidelong.
