AppCode 2018.3 Help

Menus and toolbars

AppCode menus and toolbars contain commands that affect the entire project or large sections of the project. To apply a command to the current context, use context-sensitive pop-up menus. Most of the commands has an associated keyboard shortcut to enable quicker access to it.

Use menu items with a checkbox in the View menu to show or hide the main elements of the AppCode window. For example, if you want to show the main toolbar, select View | Toolbar.


Main elements of AppCode window

1. Main menu
By using the main menu, you can open and create projects, refactor the code, run and debug applications, keep files under version control, or run other commands.
2. Main toolbar

By default, the main toolbar is hidden. To display it, select View | Toolbar on the main menu.

3. Navigation bar
The Navigation bar is an alternative to the Project tool window.
4. Context menus
Context menus, available with right-click, contain commands applicable to the current context.
