With this function LibreLogo can be able to produce chemical formula images if user input SMILES or InChIKeys.

@László Németh, What do you think about this enhancement ?

IMO, this is not a trivial undertaking. See for example:
Additionally, and for what it is worth, there is/was already an open source software program written in Python that can/could save chemical structure files to ODG format - it is/was called BKchem. It accepts SMILES and Inchlkey input (not perfectly, bu then Inchl is ambiguous for some structures, e.g. tautomers).
Unfortunately, develoement of BKchem does appear to have stalled somewhat, the last release being in 2010.
Not widely used and probably not likely to be created in LO.
And there's ACD Chemsketch. So I'd rather first solved Bug 41228.
I get where the request is coming from - it would be useful to have an open source chemical structure editor for LibreOffice, but it would probably be better to provide it as a separate extension rather than adding to LibreLogo.
As to comment 3, of course having ACD ChemSketch play nicely with LibreOffice would be nice too, but that is purely a Windows only program.

I agree. If anybody wants to implement this feature, better to do it in an extension. Closing as RESOLVED WONTFIX for the time being...
