Builder's are the most flexible of the XE file types. Builders combine multiple rich text documents sorted into a single file with titles, descriptions and color indexing.
Builders are perfect for organizing complicated storylines with alternating scenes and are a great place to save reference material. Use a Builder to organize scenes, store clippings, hold research, or use a Builder as a discard bin for worthy paragraphs.
To create a new Builder, choose 'New Builder...' from the 'Create' menu.
Enter an appropriate title, and press 'OK'.
An empty Builder will open.
Add items by clicking the 'New Item' icon.
Enter ideas by selecting a row, and simply typing in your chosen text.
Add detail to each item by adding descriptors. For each entry, a title, description, and color may be assigned.
The topmost box allows you to enter the item's title, the second it's description.
After saving, the item's title and description are shown in the listing to the right.
To change the item index color, choose 'Color' from the 'Builder' menu.
Notice the indexing color change.
Within the Builder item listing, drag the mouse to select multiple items for quick simultaneous changing.
Builder's can be used to spit large existing documents into many separate, manageable pieces.

Divide the document by inserting page breaks.
If no page breaks are included, XE will split the document using paragraphs.
