Hi! I'm starting to use Data Warrior to create a database of catalytic reactions. I download the reactions from Scifinder as an RDFile and append it to the database. Since the rdf does not include catalyst information, I want to add it myself. Most times the catalyst is the same for all the reactions in the paper, so I would like to paste a structure in several cells at the same time. How could I do this?

Thanks.

Not very obvious, but you could do the following:
- select all rows you intend to change (with shift- or ctrl-clicks)
- choose 'Edit->Find And Replace'
- choose the 'Catalyst' column
- select 'Find Any'
- paste the catalyst structure into 'replace with'
click OK

Thanks, that worked!
It would be useful if you could drag to copy like in excel or paste to all if you have some rows selected and click "Paste into table".
