So these are exactly the kinds of problems I've been working with
recently. There are several scenarios for rendering multiple

a) Different zoom for each molecule, on identical size individual canvases
b) Same zooms, different sized canvases, variable total canvas size
c) As b, but everything with the same zoom to fit on a particular size of canvas

Yes, I am interested in c)  , because of rendering of e.g. salts in a single canvas.

I guess c) can be done externally as well (with image tags'
width/height attributes, for example).

Well,  my primary reason for diving into JCP rendering was to fix 2D rendering in  Toxtree  (swing application) , because of several bug reports from end users.  The same code is used in both Toxtree and REST services , so image tags are not really an option.

Sadly, these possibilities are
not easy to switch between in the CDK/JCP code at the moment. One way
might be to call "setup" for only _one_ of the atom containers, and
not for the other. Probably for the larger one.

I had in mind some workaround, may be it will be faster if you tell me it will work /not work , or what to look for:

- Assume all parts of a molecule have 2D coordinates.
- Add them into a single IAtomContainer
- Translate (in 2d molecule coordinates)  all the parts to arrange them as in adjacent rectangles.
(no renderer stuff up to this point)
- Use the renderer on on the entire IAtomContainer

For the last part to work, the renderer should not do anything with the coordinates, just transform them in screen space.

Do you think this will work?
