File Menu


new New ... (Ctrl-N)  
Create a new file. When selected, this option will display a dialog box that lists all the registered file types (see 'Customizing PSPad - Highlighter Settings'). You can choose from 3 options at the top of the form:  
·New File  
·Use Template  
·Recent Files  
New File  
This option will open a new file of the selected type. Ordinarily this will be a blank file. However, if a file named 'default.???' (where ??? is the relevant file extension) exists in the \template sub-directory then that file will be used as the basis for the new file.  
Use Template  
This option will display a list of defined templates. These templates are stored in the \templates sub-directory. More than one template for each file type may exist and you can create your own. Once a template is selected it will be used as the basis for the new file.  
There is a checkbox at the bottom of this window; 'File name same as Template Name'. When this option is unset, the newly created file will be called 'NewXX.???' (XX is a number and ??? is the appropriate file extension). When the option is set the file table will be whatever the description of the template was. For example the  
template 'Simple HTML' will create a file called 'Simple HTML.html'.  
Recent Files  
The option will display a Most Recently Used (MRU) file list. Selecting one of the displayed files will open that file. In this respect, the function is 'open file' rather than 'new file'  
Note: You can also invoke this dialog by double-clicking anywhere in the file name tabs toolbar.
