The main window contains most important settings and docks for the primary editor features.
Every window has a menu bar, but the menu bar of the main window is a little bit special because it also contains entries for global settings, project settings and file management.
Every window has a tab bar which can hold multiple views/windows. If the main window/view get closed (as tab or the containing "real" window) the project gets completely closed, also all other windows.
The viewport is simply a preview of the map, where you can place and manipulate a world. Cuz we do not have SF world we can’t use it there, that means the viewport is more or less useless to us.
The tool-bar is a strongly simplified version of the menubar and is icon
base, but its the only place where you can find the access to the
Alpakit window. The Tool-bar contains mainly shortcuts for the
project settings, c++ building and source control, the rest ist mostly
not useful without a map.
The outliner is here again pretty useless because it simply contains the list of placed objects in the world.
One more useless view cause we don’t have a proper map to edit, but this would help you to place things into the world and contains a list of basic actors and edit tools for brushes, terrain and so on.
Finally a very very useful and important view. This view is simply a file browser for all contents of your mod project and SF/UE source like C++ classes.
In the left half, you can see a tree structure based folder explorer where you can select a folder which contents get the displayed on the right-hand side half of the view.
It also has in the left upper corner or in the context menu (r-click-menu) the ability to create, import, export, delete or modify content.
You can find in the
Content-Root folder all "normal" assets and the
`+C-Classes+` root folder contains all c classes.
