When I create a new project, CB automagicallly includes a main.c with Hello world.
Is this specified in Settings somewhere?  I can't find it.  I would like to configure CB to use my own template.c, template.h, or template++.cpp, template++.h.

You can right-click on any file in the project tree and chose "Remove file from project".

Then you can right-click on the project and choose "Add files" to add what files you like to the project.

Thanks for your reply.  I have done that, but I would really like to make it automagic.

Once you have added the files you like, you can save the project as a template. Menu->File->Save project as template.

Then when you want to create your new project, choose your template instead of one of the CB basic projects from the Menu->File->New->From template.

Thanks.  That works exactly as I hoped.
