To draw an azido group with MarvinSketch use the Insert Menu, select Groups
, scroll down to the N folder and double-click to open.  Select N3 and clic
k Close.  Now you can insert an N3 group by clicking on your molecule.  To 
expand the azide group in your molecule, select the N3 then right click and
 select Ungroup.

ChemSketch from has a lot of equipment templates but no man
ifold template.  ChemSketch is for Windows only and it's free for individua
l and non-commercial use.

Two questions:

I use MarvinSketch to draw chemical structures - does anyone know how to 
generate the azide (N3) moity, so I can draw a poly azido hydrocarbon struc

Second, I need an easy to use drawing program to illustrate a lab equipment
 set-up.  It will contain a gas manifold, a single neck round bottom, a bot
tle or two and some other simple equipment.
I would prefer an Add-In for Visio, but cannot locate one
