Co(NO3)2 becomes CO(NO3)2!

One of FX ChemStruct's most useful features is its ability to capitalise elements for you.  This can save you large amounts of time when entering equations. Some elements will cause FX ChemStruct problems.  For example, if you type co, FX ChemStruct will ALWAYS interpret that as carbon/oxygen and change it to CO.  This, obviously, will almost always be a correct interpretation.  If you really want cobalt, Co, enter it correctly capitalised as Co and FX ChemStruct will leave it alone.  In other words, if your compound contains ONLY lower case letters, FX ChemStruct will capitalise it for you taking its best guess.  If FX ChemStruct finds any upper case letters in your compound it will leave it as you wrote it.  That way you can always get the required result.
