I believe this to be a bug with Avogadro: unable to correctly process Fragments or SMILES strings
Avogadro version: 1.94.0
Operating system and version:
Windows 10 (64-bit):
Edition: Windows 10 Home - Version: 20H2
Installed on:14/03/202 - OS Build: 19042.1052
Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.2020.0
Inserting a fragment from a library or from a SMILES string
“Insert Fragment”: the corresponding dialog window opens but it is not functional (neither lists/menus appear nor text to be searched can be written in the corresponding form field).
“Insert SMILES”: dialog window opens the string is read, but it is translated into a set of n overlapped atoms, where n is the total number of atoms included in the SMILES string.
- Use Build->Insert Fragment (or Insert SMILES) into either a new window or a window already containing a molecule.
- Try writing or interacting with either
2a) the “Insert Fragment” windows (nothing happens) or
2b) the “Insert SMILES” window (apparently works but all atoms specified in the SMILES string are overlapped).
