    I appear to have installed boa-c correctly (boa-constructor-0.6.1 on top of wxPython2.8-win32-unicode-2.8.7.1.... on top of Python 2.5.1.

    When I start Boa-c, I get the "gui builder", Inspector, and Editor windows.
    As a long time user of graphical IDEs, for me the logical first thing to do is to create a visual app with no logic behind it - a window, some text, some controls, and to hit "go".

    In the docs there is a "design icon", which I presume is the icon which would indicate that I've found and opened the visual builder. I don't see that icon anywhere, nor have I found a way to get to a state where it appears. I haven't found anything in the help or on sourcenet to explain how to do this (must admit Ihaven't searched the forum extensively). Is there documentation someplace that I've missed?

    thanks

      answered my own question. Have to have a frame selected in the editor for the designer icon to appear.
