Creating a New Project
Creating a Website using the A4DeskPro Flash Website Builder
basically involves creating a project. You can create as many projects
as you wish. In
this example, we will provide you with instructions to create a basic website.
We will then explain further how to tweak and modify other attributes
of the website in the subsequent topics.
To create a new project
From the File menu click New. (Hotkey: Ctrl + N)
Click the New button from the Toolbar.
The Create New Flash Website dialog opens where you can select your new Flash template for your website.

all templates are displayed as thumbnails. In all there are
6 themes including Business, Artworks, Cyber, Clean, Leisure and Standard. You can jump to a particular page by choosing the page number
