What is the easiest way to do a quick minimization of a ligand that I build in the Workspace?

There is a minimization tool that can be accessed from several locations: the Clean up geometry button on the Build toolbar (sponge icon), as the Minimize option under the Tools menu, or simply by pressing Ctrl+M with your keyboard.

If there are atoms selected in the Workspace, this minimization operates on the selected atoms and is performed in the field of all atoms in the Workspace using OPLS_2005 force field. If there are no atoms selected, all atoms in the Workspace are minimized.
