Opening Your Project for the First Time

If you open your project for the very first time, you see the Welcome Screen.

  1. On the Welcome Screen, click the Open link.

  2. In the Open File or Project dialog that opens, find location of the desired project:

  3. Click OK.

To download a project from Git, follow these steps:

  1. On the Welcome Screen, click the Check out from Version Control link.

  2. Select the version control system where your project ts stored. Here it is Git:

    check out from version control

  3. On the next page, specify the path to the repository and select the directory to which a project will be cloned:

    opening projects vc clone repository
    Click the Test button to test a connection.

  4. Click Clone.
