The Project Browser panel allows you to view the different Designer Spaces, and their component hierarchies at a glance. By clicking Project Properties icon you can view or change many of the properties settings in your project. You can expand the folders and navigate down through each folder to see elements of your project such as windows, views, containers, and components. The Project Browser shows the entire tree structure from the project level folder down to the component level. You can navigate within your project in two ways, by selecting nodes in the Project Browser tree or directly clicking on an element like a component in the project workspace. Regardless of how you select an element, properties for that element are displayed in the Property Editor.
All projects have resources, such as Vision Windows, Vision Templates, Perspective Views, project scripts, reports, and named queries. Project resources can be inherited from one project to another. For more information, see Project Inheritance.

< (less than)

The Project Browser has basic functionality much the same as many applications that run on your PC. Functions can change depending on the type of project resource you are currently editing. When you right click on a project resource, several options are available:
"Reverting” a modified resource will revert it back to its last saved state, assuming it's been saved before. Reverting new resources deletes them.
