KingDraw — A Chemistry Station for Chemists

When we add elements in KingDraw, the element is displayed in color by default.

If you only want to change the color of a few elements individually, please use the Color Tool to adjust it. If you want to set the default color of the element to black, you can easily set it by using the Default element Color option in KingDraw.

In this tutorial, we will learn how to set the “Atom Color Mode” in each on windows PC and mobile devices.

Default Element Color

The “Atom Color Mode ” option helps you quickly switch the default color of the added element. The current version supports “colored” (system default) or “black” modes.
