This option can be used to create a new, empty database. The newly created database will be stored in the database directory specified by the option Miscellaneous : Options : Database Path. New creates four files that make up a SuperMemo database, and sets up initial values for all learning parameters.

To create a new database do the following:

1. Choose File : New (or press Ctrl+N).

2. Provide an 8-letter name for the database.

3. Click OK or press Enter.

In case the provided name is not unique, i.e., a database of the same name already exists, SuperMemo will ask you to confirm your decision. To override the old database, choose Yes in a query dialog box..
