DW Spectrum User Manual

The display on initial System launch is an empty Viewing Grid with tab name “New Layout*”. An asterisk next to a layout name, both on tabs in the Navigation Panel and layout names in the Resource Tree, indicates that the layout has unsaved changes. If you do not enter a custom name, the new tab name automatically increments by 1 (“New Layout 2”) until the user session ends.

A blank tab will always display when all layouts are closed. If too many tabs are open to display at once you can use the "<" and ">" arrows in the Navigation Panel to scroll left and right through the hidden tabs.
