We have launched a tutorial video series about the most common questions that come up while using JChem for Office. JChem for Office is a ChemAxon add-in, that equips your Office with robust chemistry handling. All episodes start with the tab in your Excel ribbon, called JChem, showing some basic tips and tricks, along with thorough explanation of some more complicated use cases, we hope to ease your work and save time while handling your chemical data in Microsoft Office environment. Watch the JChem for Office Tutorials in a playlist on YouTube:
