Create a Project

In DGLux5, you do all of your design work within a project, so the first thing you need to do is create a project to work in.

To create a new project:

  1. Log in to DGLux5, and select Project > New Project.

    The Welcome dialog opens.

  2. Choose Create New.
  3. Select a profile and template.

    Which profiles and templates are available depends on your installation of DGLux5.

    To use no template, choose the Default profile and the Blank Project template.

  4. Click Choose in the bottom right corner of the Welcome dialog.
  5. When prompted, enter a name for your project, and click OK. The following characters are not allowed in the project name : \ ? # * " / |
  6. Either double-click index.dg5 in the Project panel to start designing your home page, or select File > New File to create a new .dg5 file.
