The Constant Properties section of the Elements Chapter contains fields for the element's melting point and boiling point. Both fields are editing in a similar manner.
The field's datum control displays a physical property data value. The data value is displayed in the units shown to the right of the datum control, in the units control. A green triangle in the data control's upper right corner indicates that additional data are available. (See documentation on the Datum-Units-Reference All Data Dialog for details on managing data having different status.)
Clicking the left mouse button on a datum control activates the Datum-Units-Reference Edit Dialog enabling you to enter a value, accuracy, units, reference and comment. (See here for documentation.)
Clicking the right mouse button within a field's datum control activates the field's datum commands menu.
The menu's commands enable you to copy, cut and paste values to and from the data control. See Common Menu Commands for documentation on the commands commonly found on command menus. Some of this field's more specific commands are:
Each property field runs a set of verification tests to check the validity of an entered value. Specifically:
Cranium or Synapse will signal an error if the entered value fails a physical property verification test.
