Tip From the Options menu, choose Snap on Grid before drawing to ease the drawing ACD/ChemSketch Tutorial 82 Creating Graphical Objects 1. Drag horizontally to the right from the starting point of the orbital to stretch the control line. 2. Release the mouse button. 3. Move the mouse down to draw the body of the orbital. 4. Drag horizontally to the right to stretch the control lines. Note that to make the two segments of the orbital identical, make the lengths of the control lines equal. 5. Release the mouse button. 6. Right-click to finish drawing the orbital and switch to the Select/Move/Resize tool. 7. Select the orbital and, holding down CTRL, drag to make a copy of it. 8. Click Rotate 90° to rotate the copy of the orbital. 9. Drag the copy as shown below. 10.Click the gray color on the Color Palette to change the color of the orbital: Tip To quickly center the orbitals, select them and click the Center Horizontally button. 11.Select both orbitals and click Group . Now you can manipulate the orbitals as a single tool. object, e.g., rotate using the Select/Move/Rotate 9.3.3 Drawing a pi-type orbital We will draw the following orbital: 1. On the Drawing toolbar, click Ellipse and drag in the workspace to draw an ellipse. 2. From the Object menu, choose Convert to Polyline. 3. On the Editing toolbar, click Edit Nodes . ACD/ChemSketch Tutorial 83 Creating Graphical Objects 4. Drag the lowest node up. 5. Right-click to switch to the Select/Move/Resize tool, then select the orbital by clicking its contour, and then, holding down CTRL, drag to make a copy of it. 6. Click Flip Top to Bottom to flip the lower orbital. 7. Point to the gray color button in the Color Palette and click on the left mouse button to change the color of the orbital.

Now you can manipulate 9.4 Drawing Vacuum Distillation Apparatus This section is based on the movie apparat.exe which can be downloaded from our Web site or found in the \\MOVIES folder. 1. Switch to the Draw mode and set 50% zoom, then click New Page page. 2. In the Template Window ( to open a new empty ), from the list of templates, choose Lab Kit. ACD/ChemSketch Tutorial 84 Creating Graphical Objects 3. Select the round-bottom flask by clicking (view the scheme below). Click in the workspace to add the selected template, and then right-click to hide the template shadow. 4. Open the Template window. Select the three-way adapter (Vigreux distillation column with connecting adapter). Connect it to the flask by clicking and right-click to hide the template shadow. 5. From the Template window, choose the thermometer, and connect it by clicking as shown. Hide the template shadow. 6. From the Template window, choose the Liebig condenser and place it on the workspace near the apparatus by clicking. Right-click to hide the template shadow and switch to the Select/Move/Resize tool. 7. Click any selection handle (black squares surrounding the distillation column) to quickly switch to the Select/Move/Rotate tool. Rotate the selected object about 730 counter-clockwise by dragging any selection handle. The informative cursor will show you the angle of rotation (if the corresponding option has been selected in the Preferences dialog box (General tab)). 8. Drag the column and attach it to the apparatus. 9. From the Template window, choose the vacuum-distilling adapter and attach it to the apparatus. 10.Complete the drawing by connecting the receiving flask (round-bottom flask). ACD/ChemSketch Tutorial 85 Creating Graphical Objects 9.4.1 Annotating a Diagram ACD/ChemSketch enables you to draw many elegant and detailed set-ups of your glassware apparatus. The Lab Kit template includes burettes, beakers, hot plates, bunsen burners, etc. so that you will be able to draw an experiment from start to finish. Let's say that you are preparing the diagram for an instruction manual in an undergraduate laboratory. You might want to direct the attention of the students to certain aspects of the set up, possibly even to remind them what the parts are named, or where they are kept in the lab: Thermometer. Sign out from instructor. Water Out Vigreux column West condenser Vacuum adapter Water In 200 ml round-bottom flask. Immerse in heat bath. Receiving flask. Immerse in ice bath. Adding Text Captions From this section, you’ll find out how to add callouts to the vacuum distillation apparatus: 1. Firstly, let us set the font to be used for the text. From the Tools menu, choose Font Panel and Paragraph Panel. Specify the following settings and close the panels: ACD/ChemSketch Tutorial 86 Creating Graphical Objects 2.
