The Welcome Dialog box welcomes you when you launch Substance Designer.
It is here to help you start working with the software and access most useful links.
The Welcome dialog has three sections: the News section, the Learn section, the Create section. You can select which is shown by clicking the respective tab at the top of the dialog.
The Learn section is shown by default, and has links to Tutorials, the User Guide, keyboard shortcuts, example Substances, our Forums, and our Website.
Click the Create tab to show the Substance creation options.
This tab includes commands to create a New Substance, a new Composite Substance, or to load other documents, such as Substance Archives.
The right hand panel shows a list of recently opened Substances for quick access.
