The Chemical Equation Module supports special formatting and symbols used in chemical equations, such as multi-level subscripts and stacked superscripts and subscripts for nuclear chemistry. It can be used for static display or for graded entry.
- Grab. Select to move contents of the module within the entry field. Select the tool and then click on the equation and hold while moving the mouse.
- Superscript. Highlight text and click to superscript it or click to open the superscript editing area (shortcut: press "shift" and "6"). Note: this editor provides a special feature that allows for multi-level superscripting. To escape superscript mode, use the right keyboard arrow or click on the main line.
- Subscript. Highlight text and click to subscript it, or click to open subscript editing area (shortcut: press "shift" and "-"). Note: this editor provides a special feature that allows for multi-level subscripting. To escape subscript mode, use the right keyboard arrow or click on the main line.
- Isotope. Allows for mass numbers and atomic numbers to be written as stacked and generates super-subscripts for nuclear chemistry.
- Stacked fraction. Converts mainline fractions to stacked fractions.
- Bonds. Inserts a double bond at the cursor.
- Multiplication dot. Inserts multiplication or hydrate dot at the cursor, as in Na2B4O7 Â· 5H2O.
- Greek alphabet menus. Click to open menu with Greek letters, which can then be inserted at the cursor. Both upper and lower case are available.
- Physical states menu. Click to select from a menu of standard physical states, such as (aq) for aqueous.
- Reaction arrows menu. Select from a menu of forward/backward, weighted, and equilibrium arrows. To add a symbol over arrows, place the cursor next to the arrow and use the keyboard arrows to place an entry box above arrows.
- Create algo. Highlight text or number(s) and click to make algorithmic variables.
- Insert-algo menu. Click the green arrow to view and select available algorithmic variables from the drop-down menu.
- Grading status. Changes the module between static, graded, and interactive.
- Revert. Removes changes made to the module in the current tab.
- Delete. Removes this module from the stage.
