Creating Your Own Components

There are two ways to create new components of your own in Clutch.

Creating Components from Compositions

If a composition of components in a Frame needs to become reusable, simply right clicking the root component of the structure and selecting "Create new component" is needed. Once selected, a prompt requests a name for the new component. Upon completion, the hierarchy that was componentized is replaced in the hierarchical tree by a single instance of the new component.

Creating New Blank Components

Alternatively, a new component can be created by click in the '+' button in the Projects Component pane at the bottom on the composition panel and naming the new component.

For project components to appear in the insert menu they require at least one template to be made. The content of the frame that contains the template will be the tile that the component features in the Insert menu.
