A new slot is created with a generic name, such as newspaper_Slot_1. There are three ways to create a slot:

  • By clicking the Create Slot (slots_slot.create) Slot button in the Slot pane of the Slots tab. This creates a slot, but does not assign it to any class. The slot can later be attached to one or more classes.

  • By right-clicking in the Slot Browser in the Slots tab and selecting Create slot from the Slot menu. This is identical to the previous operation.

    Slot menu, "Create Slot" selected
  • By selecting a class in the Classes tab and then clicking the Create Slot (slots_slot.create) button in the Template Slots pane. This creates a slot and attaches it to the selected class.

You can use the Slot Editor to edit the properties of the slot.
