No, that's probably not possible. JME is a 2D format; there's no simple way to generate that from 3D.

This probably should go on the feature request page, but I'll post a feasibility question here. How hard would it be to set Extract molfile to include stereo bond information? Alternatively, could Jmol write JME files?

My intention here is to retain stereo information when a Jmol model is read into JME editor (depicted). Either approach (JME file or stereo bond encoded molfile) will work.

I have agendas associated with this too numerous to mention here!
