EasyChem - to drawing chemical structures

I found very nice soft to drawing chemical structures. It's name is EasyChem and is made by Francois-Xavier Coudert. One of the most interesting feature is that you can use LaTeX commands. There are things you should to now.
  1. At thbeginningng it's good to turn on Options--Learning messages.
  2. It's much better to download the latest snapshot, than the EasyChem from SF.
  3. If you want include LaTeX fonts into your file, you should change locales before starting EasyChem:
           export LANG=C; easychem
At the very end I would like to write, that at the moment I miss only one thing. There are no ornament with symbol of current (for ions, zwitterions).
