I'm following the directions on http://www.vogella.com/tutorials/Eclipse4LiveModelEditor/article.html,
but when I press Shift+Alt+F9 nothing happens. I tried it on a very simple E4 application and on our 'real application', but nothing gives. Two questions: (1) are there any screen shots availabe of what I should see (2) are there any alternative ways of showing the model if the key combination above doesn't work ?

Did you add it to your product or did you just install it in the IDE?

The 'vogela directives' say 'Warning Do not modify your product configuration file for this exercise. You should not include the model spy in your exported application as it is only a test and debug tool. It is not intended to be used by end users.' So instead of changing the product I changed the launch configuration, but I don't have a clue about what I should see. Currently I'm seeing nothing Wink. Probably it has to do with another vogela remark: 'Warning The code of the model spy adds this key binding to your application by modifying your application model at runtime. If you already defined key bindings this process might fail.' It doesn't say what you can do in such a scenario to make things work ...

Windows 7 SP1
MARS 4.5.0
Build id: 20150621-1200
Eclipse 4 - Model Spy (Incubation) 0.1.0.v20150714-0417 org.eclipse.e4.tools.model.spy.feature.feature.group Eclipse.org

One month later I am was reading a different article (http://eclipsesource.com/blogs/2012/05/10/eclipse-4-final-sprint-part-1-the-e4-application-model/) by Jonas Helming but this issue is still the same. The Shift+Alt+F9 does nothing. I checked the hot key mappings and found the Shift+Alt+F9 combo listed as follows.

Name: Open a spy ()
Description: Open a spy in the E4 spy window
Binding: Open a spy in the E4 spy window
When: In Dialogs and Windows
Conflicts: (none listed)

Question 1) Being new to the Spy project, is this the correct forum? My search on the forums with the strings "e4ap, Eclipse4, Model Spy" only got this thread as a hit.
Question 2) Is there a bug report on this?
Question 3) Is the statementQuote:
"You should not include the model spy in your exported application as it is only a test and debug tool. It is not intended to be used by end users."
correct?
