I'm directly exporting my chemdraw structures as .png files. Is there a way of turning off the transparent background in a .png export? I have the background set as white, but this doesn't seem to "stick" when I save as a .png. I don't want it to be transparent, I want it to stay white. I can't seem to find any settings about exporting .pngs.

I can export as a .jpeg and it saves the white background, but the image doesn't look as crisp or dark as the .png and I would prefer the .png.

If you are using ChemDraw 18.x for Windows, you need to click the Options button after selecting PNG as your file format. Then uncheck the "Transparent" option that is selected by default. In Mac, the option is there right after selecting the format type.
