Note that BIOVIA Draw support is limited to BIOVIA Draw 2019 or later, for Windows.

  1. Open a BIOVIA Draw file in the BIOVIA Draw application and select the molecule(s) you wish to import.

  2. Copy the molecule(s) using the Edit > Copy As > Sketch String or Molfile (Ctrl+M) menu options.

    BIOVIA Draw molecular drawing data must be MOL/RXN compliant for Molfile data to display correctly. Refer to BIOVIA support documentation for more information.

  3. Place the cursor where you want to paste the molecules within the main drafting window.

  4. Use Ctrl+V/Cmd-V or the Paste option in the Edit menu to paste the molecule(s) at your cursor location.

    The molecule(s) will be displayed in .png format, but remain editable.

  5. If your molecular drawing contains Markush group labels, Rowan Patents can identify these and help you define and track them.
