The project selector

The project selector SINGLE-USER


The project selector lists all projects that you've created and opened before in your articy:draft installation 1. The projects listed here are shortcuts to project files on your hard disk. You can open a project by double-clicking it. The little "house" icon 3 indicates that the project is a locally stored single-user project.

Creating projects / Opening projects from file

You can create a new project by clicking the "Create new project" button. This will bring up an easy-to-use creation assistant. See here for details on project creation.

If you have other projects that don't appear in the project selector (because articy:draft doesn't know them yet), you can open them from file 2.

The project selector MULTI-USER


The project selector in multi-user mode lists all projects that are accessible to you on the connected server. In order to get access to a new project, a project administrator needs to add your articy:draft user to the project's staff. Once this is done, the project in question is automatically listed here.

Please note the little world icon in the upper right corner of every project. This symbolizes, that the project is not only stored on your local harddisk but the actual master data is kept safe on a server that could possibly be anywhere in the world.

Creating projects / Importing projects to server

You can also create a new server project by clicking the "Create new project" button. This will bring up an easy-to-use creation assistant. See here for details on project creation.

If you want to import a project to the server to make it accessible to your team members, click the "Import project" button 1. This lets you import single-user projects that you've prepared for the team and migrate them onto the server. See here for details.
