I believe this to be a bug with Avogadro
Avogadro version: v1.20
Operating system and version: Microsoft Windows 11 Home Version 10.0.22621 Build 22621
Using the draw tool to connect atoms together, and using the select tool to select atoms.
Atoms are not selectable using the select tool (with Atoms/Bonds option being on) and I’m not sure if this is also the issue that is preventing me from using the draw tool to make bonds between atoms. I suspect these two errors are linked and from the program unable to identify/select bonds.
Originally I installed Avogadro on a new computer and obtained the missing msvcp100.dll file error. I installed C++ Redistributable 2010 x64 and x86 and fixed that error. However upon trying to draw molecules and connect atoms between two bonds, the program seems unable to do so, and when I used the select tool to try to select atoms, only bonds are selected.
Thank you kindly for your time and help. Any solutions or workaround to this problem would be greatly appreeciated. This is a great platform, and the ability to manipulate bonds while optimizing the geometry is indispensible for creating conformers for computational experiments.
