LayOut opens with the Getting Started dialog box. This dialog box has two tabs (three when there are recovered LayOut files). These tabs are: New and Recent. The New tab contains a list of LayOut templates on the left with thumbnail images of each template on the right. The Recent tab contains thumbnail images of recently opened files.

The New tab, by default, displays thumbnail images of all templates (the Default Template group is selected on the left).

To select a template:

  1. Use the scroll bar on the right to scroll through the thumbnail images of all of the templates.
  2. Double-click on the thumbnail image of the template you want to use, such as 'Letter Landscape.' A new, untitled, file is opened using the selected template.
