  2. Navigate to the Generation tab and enable the plug-ins so they are triggered once you generate your project.

  3. Click Save to save your changes.
  4. Click the Generate icon () on the toolbar. The Generate Tigerstripe Project dialog box displays.
  5. Accept the default Source Folder or click Browse to navigate to a new location and click Finish.
