How to draw catalytic cycles in ChemDraw

So it’s NSF proposal and seminar season at UIUC and all of the ugliest catalytic cycles are on display around the department. No, I’m not talking about the reactions themselves, but those circular arrows. Ugh! Gross!

If your cycles look like the one on the right, FOR SHAME.

I┬árealized that this is not something they teach in class, so as a public service, I created this video on how one can make gorgeous catalytic cycles using ChemDraw’s Pen Tool.

You’re welcome.
