New Project - Get Started - VEXcode V5

A new Blocks project opens any time you start VEXcode V5. But, you can also open a new Blocks or Text project after VEXcode V5 has already started.

This article will cover the following topics:

  • Open a Template
  • Open a Blank Project

Note: when starting a new project, a prompt will appear asking you to save if the current project has not been saved yet.


Open a Template

Templates have a special icon and are used to create a blank project with a preset device configuration.
