Cranium's version 4 release contains new graphing, reporting, and bookmarking capabilities as well as numerous productivity improvements. View the sections below for listings of new capabilities and bug fixes.
To assist us in quickly correcting difficult to diagnose bugs, Cranium now includes a function logging capability. These log files will enable us to rapidly identify the particular functions which are causing problems.
The references and comments of entity identifiers are now correctly exported. (See JSON Exporting for details.)
Evaluating techniques is an essential task in the estimation of physical properties. Typically we record technique evaluation results in a Report document. Additional options are now available for generating reports from technique evaluations.
To estimate temperature and presssure dependent physical properties, you must first enter one or more temperatures or pressures. Cranium and Synapse provide dialogs that enable you to easily enter a series of temperatures and pressures. These dialogs now enable you to quickly select common temperature limits (melting point, boiling point, critical temperature) and pressure limits (triple point pressure, critical pressure).
XY graph data sets and graphs are combined into a new chapter within the new Graph Document. See the documentation to understand how to transfer data from the old xy graph documents into the new xy graph entity.
Triangular graph data sets and graphs were combined into a new chapter within the new Graph Document. See the documentation to understand how to transfer data from the old triangular graph documents into the new triangular graph entity.
An option has been added to the Bookmarks menu to allow or disallow duplicate bookmarks. See documenation for Using Bookmarks for details on Cranium's and Synapse's bookmarking capabilities.
Bug Fix: An error in units checking prevented the entry of curve values for mixture phase equilibrium properties. This error has been corrected.
Recently cited references can now be easily accessed from a dropdown menu attached to each reference control. This should simplify the task of adding a reference to each datum which is highly recommended.
