The App Inspector

The App Inspector is your best friend during development as it provides a complete overview of your App.

It is organized into Tabs. Each Tab is relevant to a particular workspace. You can double click a Tab to detach it into its own floating window.

Clicking the small icon on the far right of the App Inspector title bar will detach it into its own floating window.

Double clicking the window title bar when it is floating will attach it back into place.

The Apps Files Tab

The Apps Files Tab contains files list pertaining to the Apps Workspace.

It has two internal tabs: Apps and Files.

Apps

The Apps tab contains the App Names panel and lists App names by App Center Tile category. Click on the arrow displayed to the left of the category name to expand and collapse the category (or double-click the category name).

When an App name is double-clicked, the App is opened in the Pages Workspace.
