In android studio, there are no permission tabs in androidmanifest.xml. Where do I get that tab?

I don't have tabs populating at the bottom of android manifest.xml. How do I get to those tabs that were previously present in Eclipse as shown in the video. Thanks

Hi Alberto, from what I see you have to add it manually. You can read more about it here.

Yeah, you can just do it manually in the androidmanifest.xml. It may sound pretty overwhelming, but it was quite easy. Let us know if we can help! (usually ben shows what the xml would look like right after).

One of the few reasons why moving away from Eclipse to Android Studio (IntelliJ) will hurt a little. One as you pointed out no GUI layout for manifest files thus the permission, string resources etc.

Maybe in future, but for now you'll have to stick to adding it manually. On the bright side, it's better if you'd ask me. You get to learn a thing or two about xml files.

Hope this helps
