Today we create our first document in TechEditor — we will type the text, format it and add one elementary application to the project.

1. Create a new report

Start TechEditor to create a new document. On the ribbon Tools File / Document, click New, and then New report:

Hello, world! in TechEditor

2. Type the text

Type "Hello, engineering world!" in a text editor:

Go to the Form tab and click the Components button:

Select the TButton component (button) on the component palette and click on the form:

Click the Inspector button to open the Object Inspector.

Highlight the button on the form. Make sure its properties are displayed in the Inspector:
