Begin by opening the PedPal icon from your Applications folder or from Launchpad.
To begin a new pedigree file, choose File|New (i.e., select the New option on the File menu). Or to open an existing file, use File|Open.
PedPal also has some built in example pedigrees for demonstration purposes. To display one of these, choose File|Open Sample Pedigree Data File.
If you have previously used either Breeders Assistant or Pedigree Assistant you can import the pedigree data you have previously stored. See Importing - From Breeders Assistant and Importing - From Pedigree Assistant.
If you have pedigree data from another source that you want to import - such as from a different pedigree program or a spreadsheet - start by creating a new file and then choose File|Import Text/CSV Data. See Importing - From Text/CSV Files.
Once the file is created/opened, the Main Window is displayed.
