Context Field

  • Atom: The data will be attached independently to all atoms in the selection.

  • Bond: The data will be attached independently to all bonds in the selection.

  • Single Bond: The data will be attached independently to all single bonds in the selection.

  • Double Bond: The data will be attached independently to all double bonds in the selection.

  • Fragment: The data will be attached independently to all disconnected fragments that are completely or partially contained by the selection.

  • Selection: The data will be attached to the whole selection.

The number and name of the selectable contexts may vary in different configurations.

URLs as Attached Data

Values starting with www and including at least 2 full stops are handled as web page links (no spaces allowed). The format <scheme>://<authority><path>?<query>#<fragment> is also recognized. Double-click or Ctrl-click on the link will open the webpage. Links are currently not underlined.

Customizability

The elements of the Name and the Value editable combo boxes can be customized by the administrator. The corresponding elements of the Value combo box can be defined for each element in the Name combo box list, just as the corresponding Name combo box contents for each element in the context combo box.

For details about the customization process, see Configure the Attach Data Dialog.

Label Placement

The labels can be positioned in 3 ways:

  • Absolute

  • Relative

  • Next to objects

Absolute means a stationary label, which can be moved independently from the structure. If the structure is moved, the label does not change its place.

Relative labels always move with the same xy coordinates as the object.

Labels next to objects can not be moved separately.
