Creating a new Rulesheet

Creating Rulesheets involves the same general process as described in Creating a Rule Project and Creating a Vocabulary. Follow these steps to create a new Rulesheet:
1. Choose File > New > Rulesheet from the menubar
2. Click the down arrow next to the New icon on the toolbar and select Rulesheet. Either method launches the Create New Rulesheet wizard.
3. Highlight the Rule Project you would like to associate the new Rulesheet with in the list (or enter it manually in the Enter or select parent folder entry area.
4. Enter a file name for the Rulesheet in the File name: entry area.
Note: The Advanced options are not relevant to Corticon and should not be used.
5. Click Next to continue.

Note: The dialog only lists the Vocabularies for the parent project. This prevents you from creating cross-project assets. Do not create cross-project assets.
6. Select the Vocabulary with which to associate the Rulesheet. A Rulesheet can only be associated with one Vocabulary. In this example, we expanded the Example_Project folder and chose the Cargo.ecore file we created earlier. As you create additional Vocabulary files within a Rule Project, they become available for selection from this list.
You need to have a Vocabulary within a Rule Project (either imported samples or newly created) in order to create a Rulesheet.
7. Click Finish. Your new Rulesheet is now displayed in the Rule Project Explorer window (A) and in a new Rulesheet window with a tab of the given name (B).
