When first starting Disketch, you will be greeted by the welcome dialog, where you can select to either:

Selecting 'Create new project' will open the select label layout dialog. From here you can decide which kind of project you wish to create.

Once you have selected a project type, you will see the main window, where you will spend most of your time refining your creations.

Your work will be automatically saved to help you restore it if there is any interruption or crash happened. In these situations, just re-run Disketch, your work will be recovered. Make sure you save your autosaved project to your working directory before continue with your creations. Note: The editing project is temporarily saved for recovery every minute.

When you have finished designing your label, click the Print buttons on the main window toolbar to bring up the print preview dialog.
