Revision 7007, 3.6 KB (checked in by kjdon, 16 years ago)

made some modifications to the gli help to remove the hunting and mirroring panes. this meant that some strings needed to be changed - I have changed the english ones, and put placeholders in the other langs for them - hopefully someone can translate them :-)

98To create a new collection, open the "File" menu and choose "New".  Several
99fields need to be filled out -- but you can change their values later if you
100need to, in the design view.
101<p></p>
102"Title" is the text displayed at the top of your collection's home page.  It can
103be any length.
104<p></p>
105"Short Name" is the collection's filename.  It must be unique.
106<p></p>
107"Author's Email" should be a valid email address.
108<p></p>
109"Description of content"
110should describe, in as much detail as possible, what the collection is about.
111Use the [Enter] key to break it into paragraphs.
112<p></p>
113Finally you must specify whether the new collection will have the same
114appearance and metadata sets as an existing collection, or whether to start a
115default "New Collection".
116<p></p>
117Click "OK" to create the collection.  If you chose "New Collection" you are
118prompted for the metadata sets to use in it.  You can choose more than one, and
119you can add others later.
120<p></p>
121Clicking "Cancel" returns you to the main screen immediately.

125Buttons, like menus, have one character underlined.  To "click" the button,
126press [ALT] and the underlined character at the same time.
