Click the download link. A dialog box should appear asking if you would like to ‘Run’, ‘Save’ or ‘Cancel’. Click ‘Save’


When you click 'Save', the computer will ask where you would like to save the downloaded file. It is very important that you save the downloaded file somewhere safe in case you ever need it again. A good idea would be to create a new folder called 'Widgit Downloads' in your 'My Documents' folder and save all your Widgit downloads inside it.

To start using your new resource, open Communicate: SymWriter and select 'Open Environment' from the 'File' menu.

A dialog will appear asking which file you would like to open. It should begin in the 'Environment' folder. If it does not, you will need to browse to the 'Environment' folder. The default location for this is:

C:\Users\Public\Documents\Widgit\SymWriter\Environments (Vista\Windows 7)
