Last week I wrote about the benefits of starring issues filed against Android Studio. This time, I have a quick update on a previous tidbit.

Back in July of last year, in Tidbit #27, I wrote about how to toggle the build output view in Android Studio. I received a question from a reader about how to find this functionality now.

Thanks for reading, and tune in next week for an exciting Rx-related tidbit! And, please follow me on Medium if you're interested in being notified of future tidbits.

This tidbit was discovered on July 2, 2020.
