Using the Chime Menu
One accesses the Chime menu on Windows by right-clicking on the embed structure box. If you
are using a Macintosh, hold down on the mouse key over the structure box and the menu will appear.
The menu allows one to interact with the structure being displayed.
There are two main threads of use.

- Standard actions such as File | Open or Edit | Transfer to ISIS/Draw
- Select various areas of structure and then execute actions on selected regions.
Once a selection is made, all further actions through the menu will only
work on the "highlighted" section. You are able to modify the selection
by going to "Select | Highlight Selection" or one of the other select options.
Other key features on the Chime menu include "Sculpt Mode" and Transfer to Sculpt. Information
concerning the Sculpt product can be located on the mdli.com
If you wish to use the hotlink to MDL's ISIS/Draw (used for drawing chemical structures), you must
have ISIS/Draw installed on your machine. You can download a version of ISIS/Draw from the MDL Web site.
