14<p>To create a new collection, open the "File" menu and choose "New".  Several fields need to be filled out -- but you can change their values later if you need to, in the Format view.</p>
15
16<p>"Collection title" is the text displayed at the top of your collection's home page.  It can be any length.</p>
17
18<p>"Description of content" should describe, in as much detail as possible, what the collection is about. Use the [Enter] key to break it into paragraphs.</p>
19
20<p>Finally you must specify whether the new collection will have the same appearance and metadata sets as an existing collection, or whether to start a default "New Collection". Default new collections have a standard configuration and use the Dublin Core metadata set. These can be changed later.</p>

22<p>Click "OK" to create the collection. </p>
23
24<p>Clicking "Cancel" returns you to the main screen immediately.</p>
