To create a new model, either click the New button btn_new9 in the quick access toolbar. The New Model dialog opens:

When you create a new model, you can either use QPR ProcessGuide's default settings, empty settings, the BPMN template, or a template in which certain parts of the model (could be even a complete model) and settings are already specified.

 

Templates are very useful in that once you have specified your desired modeling options, settings or even modeled a complete model, you can save them to a template and then easily re-use that model as a basis for every new model that you create. If a default template has been set in the modeling options, you will see the template path on the corresponding field.

 

Default settings: If you do not wish to apply a template to your new model, then you can select to use the default settings. Simply select the Default settings option and then click "OK". The default settings use the default ProcessGuide modeling notation and options, and this is a good choice if there is not a suitable template or base model available and/or you want to create a new model from scratch. The modeling options and notation can be customized afterwards, but if you are going to use a template, you need to select it at this point. A base model can be attached later.

Empty settings: This is the most bare-bones option for starting to build your own model with any notation from a scratch. This option starts with only one process step type (Main Process) and system types defined.

Basic Process Modeling Template ( Color): This template provides a colorful set of process modeling elements needed for basic process modeling using swimlanes.

Basic Process Modeling Template (Black&White): This template provides a black & white set of process modeling elements needed for basic process modeling using swimlanes.

BPMN 1.0 Template: The BPMN 1.0 Template supports BPMN modeling notation version 1.0 with BPMN specific element types, symbols, and type attributes. If you want to use the BPMN 1.0 Template, select it from the list and click "OK". (For further information on the BPMN Template, see QPR ProcessGuide - BPMN Modeling Guide.)

BPMN 1.2 Template: The BPMN 1.2 Template supports BPMN modeling notation version 1.2 with BPMN specific element types, symbols, and type attributes. If you want to use the BPMN 1.2 Template, select it from the list and click "OK". (For further information on the BPMN Template, see QPR ProcessGuide - BPMN Modeling Guide.)

Enterprise Architecture Tempate: The Enterprise Architecture Template provides element types which are suitable for use case and ER (entity relationship) diagrams.

File templates: If you wish to apply a file template to your new file model, then you can select either a file template on the list (if any exist) or the "More file templates..." option and click "OK". If you selected the "More file templates..." option, the Load from Template window opens. Browse to locate the desired template on your machine. Once you have located the template, click "OK". Even if you use a template, you can still customize the modeling notation according to your wishes.
