Cannot add packages

JonasRembrattJonasRembratt SEUniversity ✭✭✭

I'm just starting experimenting with Workbook/Inspector but I'm stuck. When I open "File" >> "Add package ..." that option is unavailable (grayed out). Is there a reason for this, such as my level of MSDN license (VS Professional) or something?

    What version of Workbooks do you have installed?
    What operating system are you running?
    What type of workbook do you have open?

    Workbooks 1.1 does not support NuGet packages in Android workbooks. On Windows, this limitation is extended to iOS workbooks as well. We have fixed this for 1.2.

    Inspector is the IDE integration that allows you to have a workbooks-like connection to your own debugged app. It is only available to Enterprise customers.

    Workbook v1.1.2.0

    Guess you pretty much answered my question then. :-)
    Will NuGet be supported for Android Workbooks in the future?
