Publish

Publish images before working to add interactions/readme settings. Export images icons enabled in orange color and Publish

After publishing the lua and image files , you may click Compress PNG files. It will save the file size of the app.

Check it with Corona Simulator. Kwik automatically opens Corona simulator. If you like to open manually, you can open it from File menu or click Open from Corona simulator. Then Browse main.lua

Swipe to navigate between the pages

Then disable Export image. The icon color should be in gray. It is faster for kwik to publish lua codes for buttons, readme, animations and so on without re-creating image files.

Next tutorial explains how to add the interactions to page1.
