A new Blocks Project opens when you start VEXcode IQ, but you can easily create a new C++ project once VEXcode IQ is open.
Creating a New C++ Project
Launch VEXcode IQ
VEXcode IQ will open with the initial project in Blocks editor mode.
To create a C++ project, open the File menu and select ‘New Text Project.’
VEXcode IQ will switch to C++ editor mode and load a default blank project.
