Hi everyone,

After updating to ChemDraw 16, I have encountered two issues with converting ChemDraw documents to .eps files for use in Latex documents.

The bond width in the exported .eps file is almost twice that of the ChemDraw document. This looks bad when printing documents.

When drawing cyclohexanes and pyranoses in chair conformation, the bold and wedged bonds becomes misaligned.

I have also tried to convert the ChemDraw files to .pdf. This gives me the same problems.

Is there anything that I can do about it? Some settings I can change?

This issue is replicable so far only in version 16. If you downloaded the software using a site subscription, you can try if version 17 works better for you.

If the issue continues, please submit a ticket to our support team.
