Has Anyone Prepared a Caedium Dictionary?

Has anyone prepared a Caedium dictionary? If so, are you willing to share it?

Although the Symscape web site has excellent information, it is somewhat difficult to access. A dictionary containing concise definitions of parameters would be very useful. A quick pass through the UI provides the following parameters:

Tool tips displayed in the Caedium status bar

Tool tips (definitions) are displayed in the Caedium status bar (bottom left of the app window) if you select (left-click) most tools or properties.

No Tool Tips in Caedium 2.4.2 32-bit for Mac OS X

I don't see any tool tips in the Caedium status bar in the version of Caedium I am running (2.4.2 32-bit for Mac OS X). Am I missing something?

Mac OS X seems to display tooltips fine

Sorry, maybe it was misleading on my part to say most properties and tools have tooltips. A more accurate phrase would have been some.

I just checked the latest Mac OS X version and it seems fine.

For examples:

  • Try selecting tools on the Results Tool Palette and watch the status bar. E.g., Scalar Fields->Ma and the status bar will display Mach Number.
  • Some, not all properties in the Properties Panel have tooltips. E.g., On the Physics Tool Palette, select Substances->Air, then in the Properties Panel select the property Material->Cp and the status bar will display Specific Heat
