Open Blaze, open an existing project or create a new project, and open a new
topic (or press Ctrl+t or on the Project menu, click Add Topic). Nothing

Perhaps I misunderstood the question? I've not had a lot of coffee yet.

I have a question.

How do you create a new file in Blaze? When I looked at it I couldn't create
a new file. I had to import a file from some other source.
