Opening a new project will add a new empty screen automatically.

Otherwise, you can add new screens by “New Screen” button above the Screen Tree:

  • Groups are treated as scenarios by default. However, a group can hold any number of screens you choose to group together.
  • To create a new group, right-click on a Screen Tree and choose the Add Group option:

  • The other way to move a screen into a group is to cut and paste it, via the right-click menu.
  • To copy-paste a screen, use copy-paste commands from Screen Tree panel’s right-click menu. Note that screen’s annotations will not be copied by default.

Copy-Pasting a Screen Together with Its Annotations *

By default, copying a screen does not copy its annotations.

To copy screen together with the annotations, use the “Paste With Comments” option on Screen Tree panel’s right-click menu:
