"View bondable atoms" is a nice feature already, and enables some rudimentary optimization when it comes to forming H-bond networks, a personal favorite aspect of the game I like. However, what the game doesn't show is the actual angles at which atoms need to be oriented in in order to bond. This has created some frustration during my newer user experience when trying to form new bonds, being well within range, but not seeing any bond formation. If the game could be clearer about this with a "show bond angle indicators" option or something of the sort, it could be much easier to slot in donors and acceptors together with each other at the correct angles.

This is a simple visual change that could be implemented, but bonus points if a "snap-to" function is being considered too for these bonds; especially for straightened sheets!
