In this new interface, we’ve focused on making the Experience you’re building as central, big and bold as possible and consolidated all the options in a compact, clear and simple panel on the left. Simply expand each section on the left-hand panel and experiment with the dials. Your changes will be reflected in real-time on the full page to the right.

Of course you can still configure each individual app in your project by hovering over the app and clicking the Gear Icon. This reveals a powerful property sheet for advanced, per-app settings.
