This section is based on the movie lipid.exe which can be downloaded from our Web site or found in the Movies folder. 9.6.1 Drawing the lipid Make sure you are in the Draw mode. ACD/ChemSketch Tutorial 92 Creating Graphical Objects 1. On the Drawing toolbar, click Ellipse to draw a circle. . Drag in the workspace while holding down SHIFT 2. Click the black color of the Color palette to fill the circle. 3. Click Polyline . Click repeatedly in the workspace near the circle to draw the carbonic tail and right-click to finish drawing. Tip To easily draw the symmetric zigzag line, you may previously select the Snap on Grid and/or Show Grid from the Options menu. 4. Click Edit Nodes and smooth the zigzag line in the following way: a. Select all the nodes of the drawn polyline by dragging the selection rectangle around it. Note that selected nodes become black. b. Click Convert to Curve and then Smooth . tool. c. Right-click to switch to the Select/Move/Resize 5. Point to the curve and drag it holding down CTRL to leave the copy of the curve behind. ACD/ChemSketch Tutorial 93 Creating Graphical Objects 6. Arrange the tails as shown by dragging them. Tip If you select all the elements of the phospholipid and click Group , you will be able to manipulate them as a single object, e.g., rotate it using the
Select/Move/Rotate tool. , and Select/Move/Rotate as Try drawing the micelle picture using the copying feature (holding down CTRL while dragging), Group , Rotate 90° well as the aligning and flipping tools: 9.7 Creating Tables
Starting from version 7.0, ACD/ChemSketch offers an enhanced tool for drawing and managing tables. In this section, you will learn how to insert the table, add data to the table, and edit table. As an example we will draw the following table: ACD/ChemSketch Tutorial 94 Creating Graphical Objects 9.7.1 Drawing the Table Contents
First of all, we should draw the contents for our table: 1. Switch to the Structure mode. 2. Draw the structures of benzene, naphthalene, and quinoline using the technique described in the previous sections or find these structures in the Dictionary
N : 3. Switch to the Draw mode and, using the Artistic Text tool the structures: , insert the names for each of
N Benzene Naphthalene Quinoline 4. Now calculate all or some of the properties for each of them (for more details on how to calculate properties, refer to Chapter 6). If necessary, move the structures and text for better viewing. You should obtain something like the following: Benzene Composition = C(92.26%) H(7.74%) Density = 0.873 ± 0.06 g/cm3 Naphthalene Composition = C(93.71%) H(6.29%) Density = 1.037 ± 0.06 g/cm3 N Quinoline Composition = C(83.69%) H(5.46%) N(10.84%) Density = 1.106 ± 0.06 g/cm3 5. Choose the Artistic Text tool. Click the empty space and type ‘Structure’. Then click outside the text box. In the similar way insert ‘Name’ and ‘Properties’. These are going to be the table headings: ACD/ChemSketch Tutorial 95 Creating Graphical Objects 9.7.2 Inserting Table
Now we can add the borders to the table contents: 1. On the left toolbar, click Table and drag in the empty workspace until you define the approximate size for your table. The Insert Table dialog box appears. Set the number of rows and columns to 4 and 3: 2. Click OK. The empty table is inserted. Right-click to leave the table drawing mode. 9.7.3 Placing Data into Table
After the table is drawn, we can fill it in with the previously specified data: 1. Make sure that the Select/Move/Resize tool is enabled and drag the ‘Structure’ notice to the upper leftmost cell of the table so that it is placed somewhere in the center of the cell. As you release the mouse button the text is automatically added to the cell and the cell is resized to fit the text (this is the first way to add the data to the table): 2. Now drag the benzene structure to the cell right below the Structure heading. Note that the cell size changes correspondingly: ACD/ChemSketch Tutorial 96 Creating Graphical Objects 3. Another way of filling in is as follows. Click the naphthalene structure to select it, hold down SHIFT and click an empty cell below the cell with the benzene to select both objects. On the Editing toolbar, click Group . The structure is automatically placed into the cell and the cell is fitted to the structure size...
