Location of AndroidManifest.xml

Page 97 states that this file "…lives in the app/manifests directory…"
However, on my system (Android Studio v2.3.3 on Windows 10), it’s in: app/src/main.

Why is this different?
Did Android Studio change their default location for the manifest since publication?


The location that Android Studio shows depends on your “perspective” that you are viewing the files with. You are probably using the “Project” perspective. In the book, we assume the “Android” perspective (it’s the default and it can simplify things).

Here’s what the structure should look like with the “Android” perspective.

Thanks - makes sense!

Getting used to the different perspectives…
