“Hello World”, Multi Lingual Sample", “Animations” and “Actions” are sample projects embedded in Kwik. You can click to open it later for your reference.
Before working on a new project, let’s take a quick look at the status bar at the bottom of Kwik Panel
Open Settings window
- Export images: when enabled, Kwik will export images from each document layer;
- Export current page only: when enabled, it exports content just for the current page, instead of the entire project;
Click Settings button and check the configurations. When the window opens, please choose General Tab.
Although there are several options, the only ones that matter at this moment are
Location of Solar2D Simulator
The simulator opens when you publish your project.
Location of Project Root Folder
your each project will be saved inside the project root folder
You can set each path by clicking Browse button.
These are their default paths
- Application\Corona\Corona Simulator.app
- C:\Program Files (x86)\Corona Labs\Corona\Corona Simulator.exe
