First of all, one disappointment: TheIDE is really using a lot of context menus. So yes, it is all about right-clicking some lists and places.

There are three possible situations that might be problem:

a) Adding .lay file to the project. To do that, right-click list of files (of package where you want to add layout file) and simply type the name of file. If it will have .lay extension, theide will use layout designer for editing this file.

b) Adding a Layout to layout file: Right click list of layouts in layout file (the left top pane of _designer_).

c) Adding a new widget: Right-click layout where you want the widget to be places. I guess this is the least intuitive of three, the reason for this is that we have a large list of widgets which can moreover be extended by definition files, so the menu is the most logical way how to show that number of widgets.
