Opening a Neut Page

Alter you install the program and enter your serial number, you should see Manga Studio's workspace. The next order of business is to create a new page to start drawing on by following these steps:

1. From the main menu, choose file'! New11 Page.

A New Page dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 3-1. You're presented with a lot of choices for page types, as well as an option to create your own page. I go over pages and page templates in Chapter 4, but for now, you can just pick a basic page template to work from.

2. If it isn't already selected, click the Page Templates tab located at the top of the dialog box.

Off the bat, you see various types of page templates, separated into folders. You also see two standalone pages above the folders, one of which you use for this exercise.

3. Select the Size A4 Paper Finish B5 5mm template and click the OK button.

Now you have a page to start drawing on, as shown in Figure 3-2. The blue lines you see on the page are the print guide. These help you know what area of the page is safe to draw on and what art will be cut off by the printer. I break down the print guide in further detail in Chapter 4.

Figure 3-1:

Select the template you want to use from the New Page dialog box.
