The Model Editor for .NET Core 3+ WinForms and .NET Standard 2+ Blazor projects is currently available as a community technology preview (CTP) and requires installation of .NET Core 3.1. For more information, refer to the KB article FAQ: Model Editor for .NET Core and .NET Standard (CTP).
The Application Model is formed from layers. The first layer is generated from code. The following layers represent the changes stored in XAFML files that are located in referenced modules. The final layer represents the changes stored in the application project's XAFML file. All these changes are superimposed one upon the other when the Application Model is loaded. In addition, there is a User.Model.xafml file that contains changes made by an end-user in previous application runs. This file represents the top layer of the Application Model when it is loaded during an application run. You can examine and edit the Application Model in any available layer. For this purpose, the Model Editor should be used.
