Answer:
Hello,

This configuration is found on the "Preferences..." menu.

Preferences affect the way the Chem & Bio Draw 11.0 application works, regardless of the document with which you are working.

You need to change the Tolerance setting:

    1. Go to File>Preferences. The Preferences dialog box appears.

    2. On the General tab, lower the Tolerance value (in pixels) until you are satisfied.
    Note: the Tolerance setting will determine the size of the highlight box and how close you must get to activate an object. The default setting for the Tolerance is 5 pixels. At this setting, the highlight box appears on bonds if the pointer is located 5 pixels or less from any point on the bond.

    3. Click on OK to apply the new settings.


To restore the CambridgeSoft default settings, click the "Use Defaults" button.

When I move certain objects over the screen in ChemBioDraw Ultra 11, as soon as an object (e.g. a curve) approaches another object (e.g. a reaction arrow), it links them together (either at the left end, middle, or right end of the arrow). How can this be switched off?
