 P: 30 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Is there some sort of Latex that allows one to draw Lewis structures on the computer? 3. The attempt at a solution The following code works in Textify: http://www.texify.com/links.php but not here, apparently. Anyway, I can make 1D Lewis structures (every element in a line). I have no idea how I'd go about making 2D structures. \text{Mg:O\limits_{.\,.}^{.\,.}:} \text{[:{Cl}\limits_{.\,.}^{.\,.}]^+[:O\limits_{.\,.}^{.\,.}:]^{2-}[:{Cl}\limits_{.\,.}^{.\,.}:]^+} \\ \text{[:O\limits_{.\,.}^{.\,.}-N\limits_{}^{.}=O\limits_{}^{.\,.}:]^+} \\ \text{[:S\limits_{}^{.\,.}-C=N\limits_{}^{.\,.}:]^-} How would one go about drawing, say BF4?
 P: 30 So, when the rest of you are making Lewis structures for homework, a lab report or a lab writeup, how do the rest of you format them? Should I break out Windows Paint?
