You can just use the command line, for example:
I'm thinking it may be a mistake that SMILES shows up as a file type in the "Open File" dialog.
The only other place I can think of is in Build Structure (under Tools... Structure Editing), where the Start Structure section includes a SMILES option. In that case you would just type or paste in the SMILES string in the indicated field.
I hope this helps,

Do I have to generate a text file with the smiles description in it? do I paste the smiles description in the file name line? or what?
