If you plan to perform all operations on your disk image from within the FileStorm project, you should skip this step and use the Finalize command.
To build a disk image, follow these steps:
Set disk image properties
If the File Inspector is showing, click once in the background of the project window. Otherwise, double-click. Then set disk image properties as described below.
NOTE: After entering information into a text field in the Property Inspector, be sure to tab to the next field (or press Return) to ensure that the changes are saved when you close the window.
NOTE: You can use FileStorm Preferences/Defaults to save the following properties so you don't have to edit them for each new project: Disk Image File, Volume Name, Custom Icon and Background Picture.
Arrange the project window
With FileStorm's WYSIWYG interface, disk images that you create will retain the layout and view options of your project. Simply arrange items in the project window as you would like them to appear in the disk image. You may also use the View menu to show or hide the Toolbar and Statusbar. (Whether you show or hide the Watermark, it will never display in your disk images.)
NOTE: The yellow and black "construction" Statusbar in the project window serves as a placeholder to reserve space for the actual Mac OS X Statusbar. It also provides a quick visual reference to differentiate FileStorm projects from the actual disk image (especially when used in conjunction with the watermark).
Build the disk image
NOTE: If you plan to perform all operations on your disk image from within the FileStorm project, you should skip this step and use the Finalize command. See the Finalizing a Disk Image page of this documentation.
