I'm trying to display some molecules in rdkit and save them as png files. Simple enough. However, when I display them, most of them are drawn at a weird angle (shown below) or even completely upside down. I tried using this section to correct this but no luck. I've looked through similar issues people had but none of them have been properly resolved as far as I can tell.

enter image description here

Does anybody have a solution to this?

Thank you !

You can use SetPreferCoordGen(True)

from rdkit import Chem
from rdkit.Chem import rdDepictor

mol = Chem.MolFromSmiles('Fc1ccc2ncccc2c1')
