Editing a Manifest File

In eclipse we can edit (giving permissions adding activity etc) AndroidManifest.xml file easily using the graphical layout view. I'm using Android studio and I could not find a graphical layout view for this file. Is there any option to retrieve this view for the manifest file as it is in eclipse. Can any body please point me out in the right direction.

Android Studio uses the community version IDE from JetBrains called IntelliJ. I've been working with IntelliJ for most of my Java projects, however sadly enough for android I could not find a solution myself.

The graphical layout is more like a feature provided by Eclipse. So you either need to switch to Eclipse to make use of that feature or manually code into the xml file in Android Studio.

If I do come across a solution will surely pass it on.

Hope that helped

Thank you for the Information !!
