1. Creating the necessary folders to store both the completed FC8 components and the project to create them

Here are the files to build the simple flowcode shown above. I have had to attach the files using a compressed folder to comply with forum rules.

Hi CSM2711

You only get to see your 'USER' folder when a component has been placed into that folder. If it's empty, FC does not display it on the tool bar. If there are components in the 'USER' folder, try closing FC and restarting. It will then be displayed.

Hope you find it useful.

Not sure if it would be useful to post these in the FC7 section of the forum?

I could move the topic to Tips and tricks, so it can cover both V7 and V8?

Hi Everyone

Here is the next tutorial - Part 5
This tutorial explains how to construct advanced component simulation techniques that involve several shapes together that have colour transitions that can be controlled. I have chosen flashing arrows but could be adapted for much more interesting designs.
