Creating a BTWYSIWYG Project

Creating a BTWYSIWYG Project from BlackTrax

When a new BlackTrax project is launched from the Portfolio Manager for the first time, a new BTWYSIWYG project associated with the launched BlackTrax project is automatically created and opens by default.

When a new BTWYSIWYG project is created from BlackTrax, all necessary settings and configurations are automatically applied to that new BTWYSIWYG project. These template projects simplify the setup process for BTWYSIWYG on new installations.

Creating and launching the new BTWYSIWYG project from the BlackTrax Portfolio Manager will automatically start BTWYSIWYG in a state that is ready for BlackTrax use.

In the Editing section of the System Configuration widget in BlackTrax, you can set the BTWYSIWYG file to automatically open after the associated BlackTrax file launches from the Portfolio Manager. For more information about editing, see Editing section.


  • We recommend to create and launch the new BTWYSIWYG project from the BlackTrax Portfolio Manager, which is more convenient than to create the new project and settings manually in BTWYSIWYG.
  • You can also launch the BTWYSIWYG file associated with a BlackTrax project via the BTWYG option under the Modules menu.
