The Element Details Mode
Double clicking an element in the periodic table, when working in the Periodic Table of Elements mode,
displays the Element Details.
The Element Details mode shows a detailed table of properties of a selected
element. In this mode you can get information about the selected element of the
periodic table, including: its main properties (atomic number, abbreviation, molecular weight,
etc.), some facts about the element (peculiarities of crystal structure, when, where
and by whom it was discovered, etc.), isotopes of this element and their
characteristics. You can also enter custom information about the selected element into the database.
To switch to the Element Details mode:
- Click the Element Details button on the toolbar at the top of the program's main window.
Tip: In the Element Details mode you can quickly view information or
custom (user-defined) data about other elements of the periodic table without
switching to other program modes. To do this, just select the necessary element in
the combo box control under the toolbar.
- Select Element Details in the Mode menu.
