As creating a new configuration is slightly different in the V2 Firmware, I made a quick walkthrough with some screenshots...

First you will need to enter a name for the configuration / showfile.

Then click "Next".

The next step is very important.
You will need to enter the minimum dot pitch you intend to use in this configuration / showfile.
Select the finest pitch you will be using OR select the fixture with the finest pitch you will be using.
A list on the right hand side will show you which fixtures will be available with that pitch-selection.

Rule Of Thumb:
- Show with only LC/LC+ Series Panels -> Select dot pitch 40mm
- Show with only EC-20 Panels -> Select dot pitch 20mm
- Show with a mix of LC/LC+ and EC-20 Panels -> Select dot pitch 20mm
Then click "Next".

In the next step you will be asked to define the size of the workspace / canvas.
You are free to keep this at the default 1280x1024, but for optimal performance it is advisable to reduce this to the actual size you will need.

In my example is was doing a show of 8x4 EC-20 Panels, so I reduced the size to 192x144.
Then click "Finish".

The configuration / showfile will be created.
The list of available fixtures (based on you pitch selection) will be shown in the "Fixture Library" on the left.
The workspace / canvas (as defined) will be indicated by the grid of dots.

And once you have added some fixtures, it looks like this.
