About this task

The contextual development environment restricts you from making some changes when the application files you want to edit belong to another application. Switching to the application that owns the application files ensures that you make changes in the proper application.


  1. Navigate to App Options Menu > Switch Applications.
    The system displays the instance's list of applications.
  2. Click the application you want to switch to.
    The system reloads Studio to display the selected application.
