I don't have a dog in this fight, but this seemed like a fairly
straightforward thing to to establish.

I opened Flare 4.2 and search on "create new file." I also got 777
hits. Number 6 in the list was Starting a Project. Looked likely. I
clicked on it. Paged down one screen and found a bullet item called
Topic Files. Got a list titled "Ways to create topics" with five very
detailed examples.

Flare isn't the most intuitive tool I've used, but I would say they
make it fairly easy to figure out how to create a new file, whether
it's a project or a topic.
