In the LiveDocs pane of the Resource console, click Create new below the upper list (the list of corpora). Alternatively, in the LiveDocs pane of Project home, click Create/use new below the list of corpora.


This dialog has three areas: Location, LiveDocs corpus properties, and Meta-information. Filling in the location and properties areas is required; the settings in Meta-information may be either left empty or with default values, or customized.

If you start this dialog with a project open in memoQ, some of the fields are pre-filled with the project default values (entered in the Project information dialog of the New memoQ project wizard or the Settings pane of Project home).

This area allows you to specify where memoQ should store the newly created LiveDocs corpus.

· My computer: Select this radio button if you want to store the new LiveDocs corpus on your own computer.
· Remote: Select this radio button if you want to store the new LiveDocs corpus on a remote server. The name or IP address of current server is also displayed in this section. This is the default setting for Location.

Note: The Location area is not active if My computer is selected as the active server. In this case, only a local corpus can be created.
