The repository

TopLeaf uses a repository to store stylesheets and content, as well as configuration information and temporary working areas.

A repository uses a folder in the local file system. The contents of a repository are ordinary files and folders, so they can be manipulated using the operating system tools. You use the TopLeaf workstation to create and modify components of the repository structure.

To create a new repository, make an empty folder in the appropriate place and use the Preferences Dialog to set the repository location. Use the Open Dialog to create objects in the repository.

TopLeaf always deals with a single repository at a time. If you have multiple repositories you can select the current repository in the Preferences Dialog.

[Warning] Warning

Some restrictions apply when setting up, restructuring or moving a TopLeaf repository. See Limitations - Repository.
