Bookmarks are simply lists of entities, e.g., chemicals, mixtures, chemical designs, references, etc. You can use bookmarks for navigating through a document, selecting mixtures for export, selecting chemicals for analysis and many more tasks. Although bookmarks are a simple concept they are a very powerful tool.
The Bookmark Sets Chapter is found in Bookmark Documents. The chapter's Bookmarked Entities Section contains the list of bookmarked entities. For example, a bookmark set might contain the following entries:
|Entity Name||Entity Type|
|1-Butanol + n-Octane||Mixture|
|AcF: Definition [MKS]||Technique|
|Abara + Jennings + Kay + Teja (1988)||Reference|
|Tc: Joback Method [MKS]||Technique|
Each document can select a bookmark set for navigation. (See Bookmark Select Dialog for details.)
Once a bookmark has been selected, you can use the bookmark navigation commands on the toolbar or within the Bookmarks menu to page through a document.
|Selects a bookmarks set.|
|Navigates to the first bookmarked entity.|
|Navigates to the previous bookmarked entity.|
|Navigates to the next bookmarked entity.|
|Navigates to the last bookmarked entity.|
Thus, using the bookmark set shown at the top of this page, pressing the First Bookmark button will navigate to the 3,4-Dichlorobenzotrifluoride Chemical page. Then pressing the Next Bookmark button will navigate to the 1-Butanol + n-Octane Mixture page. Finally, pressing the Last Bookmark button will navigate to the Tc: Joback Method [MKS] Technique page.
For many operations, Cranium and Synapse will need you to specify one or more entities. For example, when exporting property values to a process simulator, you must specify the chemicals to be exported. When evaluating an estimation technique, you can select a set of mixtures to determine the applicability and accuracy of the technique for that particular set. When designing a mixture, you must specify one or more chemicals for each category.
When Cranium or Synapse requests you to enter one or more chemicals, mixtures, references, etc., they will typically enable to use a bookmark set to specify the entries.
Bookmarks can be very useful for specifying a set of entities, e.g., chemicals, techniques, groups, etc. In this example, we use a bookmark set to specify the set of chemicals to export to the ASPEN process simulator. (See documentation on the Aspen Export Dialog for additional details.)
