xLights enables you to define models that do not fit into the concept of predesigned common shapes. For example, a snowman outline, reindeer outline, a singing face, etc. In order to define such a model: Create a new model by selecting the Create new Custom Model icon. Select an area on the Layout screen and drag the mouse across. Note that there won't be anything displayed in the box as the custom model layout has not yet been defined. A new Custom Model will be created with an initial model name of ‘Custom’ or similar. You can rename it to something more suitable. Click within the Model Data box to enter the Custom Model setup window.
