Fact Sheet Fusion v2

Fusion Databases

A Fact Sheet Fusion database can hold one or more projects. The Fusion database is where all projects and their related information such as topics, entities and settings are stored. Only media attachments such as images are not stored within the database. A Fusion database (version 2) will have a file extension of ‘fusion2’. You can create as many Fusion databases as you need.

Note: Fact Sheet Fusion can not directly open a version 1 database (.fusion). If you have an older fusion database you must import it into a Fusion version 2 database. See importing databases.

Below is a screen shot of the Fact Sheet Fusion Database interface (dialog). It currently shows no recently opened databases.

If you have an existing database (.fusion2) that is not listed in the recently used list, you can use the Open Database button to browse and select the desired database. Once a valid database has been selected the Projects dialog will appear.

Recently Used databases

Once a database has been opened it will be added to the recently used databases list. This will be shown when the Database dialog is opened again. To select a recently opened database in the list double click on the row containing the database. A recently opened database is shown below.
