Cranium and Synapse enable you to assign a reference to almost every datum entered into a document. Although this reference can be any character string, it is typically the identifier of a reference entity.
Reference entities are stored and managed in the References chapter. All documents have a References chapter.
The chapter's datapane is divided into six sections:
|Descriptive Information Section
|contains descriptive property fields for the title, authors and keywords.
|Document Location Section
|contains a single field that stores the online location of the document associated with this reference. The location is typically a file name or a web address.
|Source Information Section
|contains several fields used to store and display the References source.
|Publisher Information Section
|contains fields for storing the publisher's name and location.
|General Notes Section
|used to store any general notes about the current reference. Often a brief summary of the Reference's physical property contents is entered in this field.
|Associated Documents Section
|used to store links to any documents associated with the current reference.
The References chapter has commands for reporting, compiling and displaying references. These commands are available from the chapter's Commands menu.
The menubar provides numerous other commands for navigation, bookmarking, file operations, units conversion, etc. See the documentation on Common Commands for details.
Additional documentation on displaying, editing, copying and pasting property values can be found in the introductory documentation listed in the Related Documentation section below.
