# How can I spread the dots around Iodine atome further apart in a Lewis diagram?

When I place the dots around a Iodine atom, they are too close together. I tried to place some blank spaces around I to no avail:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{mhchem}
\usepackage{chemfig}
\begin{document}
\setbondstyle{draw=none}
\chemfig{\lewis{2:4:5:6:7:,{\text{}I\text{}}}}
\end{document}


• I see lots of electrons there. Do you want to evenly distribute the electrons instead of using pairs? Right now you are using pairs (:). – Johannes_B Jan 29 '17 at 7:47
• But should not chemfig accommodate the pairs anyway? I need them where they are now, just spread around reasonably far to be seen separately w/o overlap. – aiag Jan 29 '17 at 15:24

You might want to have the following.

\documentclass[border=1cm]{standalone}
\usepackage{chemfig}
\begin{document}
\parbox{2cm}{
