Create a file

You can create files and use them as notebook attachments or workspace files.

Create a file

  1. Go to Main menu | Tools | Attached files or click the Attached files icon on the left-hand sidebar. The tool contains two tabs:
    • Notebook: files that you create here can only be used in this notebook.

    • Workspace: files that you create here can be attached to any notebook from this workspace.

  2. Click the New file icon on the toolbar in the upper-left corner of the tab.

    Alternatively, you can right-click anywhere on the tab and select New file from the popup menu. The new file is added to the list on the selected tab.

  3. Right-click the newly added file and select Rename to provide a name and specify an extension. You can create any text-based file (CSV, TSV, and other formats).

  4. Double-click the file to open and edit it in the expanded preview window in the upper-right corner of the editor.
