Lewis symbols

Does anyone know how to create Lewis symbols on a computer? I have ChemDraw, but I can't make a Lewis symbol that looks respectable.

Re: Lewis symbols

A search on Google for "draw Lewis structures" led to way too many unhelpful results.

The same question was asked and answeredon the Computational Chemistry list-serv from a dozen years ago:

Re: Lewis symbols

In ACD/ChemSketch there is a template with a number of Lewis structures.

It may not contain what you need, but they are all easily editable.

Hope this helps.
