Documents can be thought of as files that store various types of knowledge, e.g., chemical structures, estimation techniques, reports, bookmarks, designs and selections. In Cranium and Synapse, you can open, close, create, print, convert and copy documents using the commands found on the File menu:
Cranium manages five types of documents:
Synapse manages all the documents that Cranium manages in addition to two design and two selection documents:

All document windows contain a Tab Pane, giving you the ability to change chapters, and a Status Pane, detailing information on page numbers and the current bookmark.
