Getting Package Information

There are several ways to launch the package information dialog. Once a package is selected, you can right-click on it in the list and select ‘Get Info’. You can also do this from the main menu. Select Package > Get Info. Alternatively you can double-click on the package in the list.

The package information dialog window is shown below.
