      Chemik vs ChemDraw opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      It is not possible to draw chemical structures
      Negative comment almost 5 years ago

      JohnFastman ChemDraw is specifically intended for drawing chemical structures to include in documents, presentations and beyond. Chemik is specifically not intended for that and therefore can't be a replacement. (Also, the Chemik website has an explainer Youtube video which is blocked in Denmark on copyright grounds - very useful!)
