Updating Resources

You will want to update resources just about every time you use the Viewer (including on a new install) to make sure you have the latest symbology and business logic. To do this, you simply go to the Viewer toolbar and choose Help → Update Resources. This then downloads the latest files from the RiverscapesXML repo and places them in a local resource folder. You can browse to that resource folder from the toolbar by choosing Help → Find Resources Folder.
