PlatformOS*-OSX-10.6.4OS Version
Summary0001914: Not obvious how (maybe not possible) to create create new document on OS X
Description



I just downloaded the current stable version and the development snapshot to create a simple
graph. What I couldn't figure out was how to create a new document to draw my graph in.



Reproduce:
<CD>
1. Start Graphviz
2. Click Cancel in the 'Open' Dialog (as you don't have a document yet.
</CD>



Result:
What now? There is no empty document opened for you nor is there a 'New' Tab in the
file menu.



Expected Result:
Easy way to create a new document.



I also tried this:
<CD>
1. Create empty file (something.dot)
2. Open document in Graphiviz
Result:
Graphviz Crashes
Expected Result:
Graphviz shows an empty Document the can be edited.
</CD>



Maybe I'm just too fast asleep or too stupid to catch my error. But neither the
Application nor the Documentation does gives any clue to a new user here.
Additional Information

[erg] The Graphviz app is a viewer only; you can't create a graph or edit
a graph's topology using it, hence no New tab. The input file needs to contain
a valid graph.

On the other hand, the application shouldn't crash on an empty file but should
report an error and then wait for valid input.
TagsNo tags attached.
