I have opened an AppStudio template in QT Creator so that I can edit the source code. When I go to the Build menu, the 'Build Project' and 'Deploy Project' menu items are grayed out. Is this expected? What is the workflow for editing and testing apps?

To test/run your AppStudio Projects in QtCreator, use the AppStudio Player environment.

We have included all of the AppStudio Tools under the Tools/External/AppStudio menu.

Make your main qml file the active document, then browse to Player (or hit alt+P) to launch the project.

You can use the other shortcuts to upload your app to ArcGIS Online, or make a build request without leaving QtCreator.

Thank you for your reply. I have got Cloud build to work. Local build on my mac provides a code signing error. The cloud build is sufficient at this stage.
