13This section describes how to create a new collection.
14     
15     
16To create a new collection, open the "File" menu and choose "New".  Several
17fields need to be filled out -- but you can change their values later if you
18need to, in the design view.
19<p></p>
20"Collection title" is the text displayed at the top of your collection's home page.  It can
21be any length.
22<p></p>
23"Description of content"
24should describe, in as much detail as possible, what the collection is about.
25Use the [Enter] key to break it into paragraphs.
26<p></p>
27Finally you must specify whether the new collection will have the same
28appearance and metadata sets as an existing collection, or whether to start a
29default "New Collection".
30<p></p>
31Click "OK" to create the collection.  If you chose "New Collection" you are
32prompted for the metadata sets to use in it.  You can choose more than one, and
33you can add others later.
34<p></p>
35Clicking "Cancel" returns you to the main screen immediately.
36<p></p>
37     
38Buttons, like menus, have one character underlined.  To "click" the button,
39press [ALT] and the underlined character at the same time.
