99To create a new collection, open the "File" menu and choose "New".  Several
100fields need to be filled out -- but you can change their values later if you
101need to, in the design view.
102<p></p>
103"Title" is the text displayed at the top of your collection's home page.  It can
104be any length.
105<p></p>
106"Short Name" is the collection's filename.  It must be unique.
107<p></p>
108"Author's Email" should be a valid email address.
109<p></p>
110"Description of content"
111should describe, in as much detail as possible, what the collection is about.
112Use the [Enter] key to break it into paragraphs.
113<p></p>
114Finally you must specify whether the new collection will have the same
115appearance and metadata sets as an existing collection, or whether to start a
116default "New Collection".
117<p></p>
118Click "OK" to create the collection.  If you chose "New Collection" you are
119prompted for the metadata sets to use in it.  You can choose more than one, and
120you can add others later.
121<p></p>
122Clicking "Cancel" returns you to the main screen immediately.

126Buttons, like menus, have one character underlined.  To "click" the button,
127press [ALT] and the underlined character at the same time.
