I think they mean the multiplication factor for atom coordinates ... for
more informations we should contact Dr. Ihlenfeldt or one out of the
Group of Prof Gasteiger, e.g. Achim or Thomas.

1. I think it could be usefull to implement the coordinate ouput more
correctly to store not only 3D coordinates but also 2D, 3D or both of
them analogue to CML --> With low priority, in my opinion, because i do
not really need a CTX writer and the format is not documented really
well!!! I own only the old 1994 manual in paper form.
2. This requires also taking 2D AND 3D coordinates into account when
loading molecules, so i recommend the analogue mechanism like the one in
which stores 2D informations in
and 3D informations in
Both are simple double 'atom property' descriptors, which allows us also
to store such kind of informations in all formats which support
descriptors, e.g. MDL SD
3. Finally the JOELib writer for 2DCOORDS entry can also store the
? ? ? ?
So, i think, the writer is really far behind other topics which should
be implemented ... was just an idea ... i would say forget my last mail !;-)
