Description

The Application painter's focus is now the Application object and its scripts. You no longer use the Application painter to create a new application, change applications, or modify the application's library search path. You use the Select Application and Library List dialog boxes that you access from new buttons in the PowerBar.

Because the Application painter is an environment for editing a nonvisual object of type application, it looks a lot like the User Object painter when you are editing a nonvisual object.

These views are available in the View menu:

Non-Visual Object List
Properties
Event List
Function List
Script
Structure List
Structure
