Problems with drawing molecules- atoms 'double up'

Hello everyone,

I recently redownloaded Avogadro on a new device and now every time I attempt to drag a new bond from an existing atom, the atoms just double ( as if I am creating a bond on top of the existing one).

Not sure how to stop it from doing this.

There’s a sensitivity setting as to whether you’re dragging from an existing atom or creating a new one. It looks like the new device is making it hard for you to hit the existing atom.

Personally, I use the “adjust hydrogen” features and then I click on white H atoms to convert them to carbon, oxygen, etc. (and then it automatically adds more H atoms to grow the chain):

From the graphic, it looks like you’re using Avogadro 1.2, so there’s not much we can do to the sensitivity.
