Creating or opening a Layout

A layout can be created in two ways; from the Project window, or from a View. From the Project window double-clicking the Layout icon creates a new layout. An existing layout is opened by double-clicking a layout name in the list of layout documents in the project. From the view choosing the View - Layout... menu choice creates a layout.

A layout can be created with a pre-defined layout template. When creating a layout from a view, the user is automatically requested to select a layout template. In the Layout window, a layout template can be selected by the Layout-Use Template ... menu choice.
