When you open the Studio, it loads its initial Dashboard page.
The Dashboard is the user interface that assists you when you create an application, edit existing one and handle its settings. The page maintains the Cards and List views from where you can access the projects in the Studio.
When you load the Studio for the first time and you have no current projects yet, the Dashboard provides the Create App option for creating a new project and the Import App option for importing existing projects. For more information on creating and importing applications, and managing their modules and data providers, refer to the articles on designing the application.
To return to the Dashboard view after you entered a project, click the Progress Logo on the top left corner of the application.
Working a long time on a project might cause unintended issues which affect the state of your application making it impossible to work with. In such cases, to notify you about the further actions that are needed, the Studio adds an App State Label to the card of the application. For example, you might have to upgrade the Studio, import an application that was created with an earlier or later version of the Studio, or altogether delete your application from the file system.
To facilitate the troubleshooting processes when you build applications, the >_OUTPUT bar displays the log messages. For more information, refer to the articles on troubleshooting.
