-MagicPlot projects contain Tables, Figures and Fit Plots.+MagicPlot Projects contain Tables, Figures and Fit Plots. MagicPlot Project files have **.mppz** extension.
-  * Tables contain only numerical data.  +  * Tables contain numeric or text data. 
-  * Tables which contain associated data are located in one Folder.+

-Typically, you need to openedit, process, plot and fit multiple data of various experiments or series of experiments within single projectOrdinarily you have the source (imported) Table and a number of Tables with derivative data, such as Fourier transform or statistics of source Table dataMagicPlot automatically creates a new Folder every time you import new Table. All derivative data is stored in the same Folder by default. All Plots created from Tables in certain Folder are stored in the same Folder+==== Close Unused Internal Windows ==== 
 +Feel free to close currently unused interval windows with TablesFigures and Fit PlotsThe data will not be deletedthe window will be closed onlyYou can open the closed window by double clicking on component in Project tree.
 ===== Where to start? ===== ===== Where to start? =====
-In most cases you may start with [[import|importing]] table from text file by ''Project -> Import Text Table'' menu item.+In most cases you may start with [[import|importing]] table from text file by clicking ''Project -> Import Text Table'' menu item. 
 +===== Creating Figures and Fit Plots ===== 
 +The easiest way to create Figure or Fit Plot is the following: 
 +  * Select two columns (x and y) in Table containing your data 
 +  * Select ''Create Figure'' or ''Create Fit Plot'' item in the Table context menu 
 +You may also use ''Create Figure'' or ''Create Fit Plot'' buttons in the toolbar. 
 +===== Enter Expressions in any Numeric Field ===== 
 +MagicPlot can evaluate simple expressions entered in any numeric text field (brackets are supported, see [[expressions]] for details.) For example, you can enter ''12/pi'' in circle width and height fields in [[dimensions|Dimensions toolbar]] if you want its perimeter to be equal to 12 (remember that ''p=πd'', where ''p'' is perimeter and ''d'' is diameter):
