Molecule Create
 
Molecule->Create creates a new molecule.

Molecule

The Molecule entry provides a name for the molecule object. This is optional: when empty (or filled with separator characters, as space, tab, newline), the molecule will be named Molecule. Object identification is explained in Introduction Identification.

A molecule is a container whose primary purpose is to contain other objects. When a molecule is created, it has no child objects and consequently no visual representation. The only way to select an empty molecule is therefore to write its identification or to use the mechanisms provided by Molecule Select.

To avoid this problem, when Ok is pressed and the new molecule is created, the Molecule Create dialog is automatically replaced by the Molecule Link dialog, with the new molecule identification already inscribed on it. How to link objects to a molecule is described in the section Molecule Link.
