What is the difference between Window Manager and Window Designer?

Version 1

    Back in the days of 7.1.x and earlier, Window Designer was the only tool  available for creating and editing windows.  Since then, Window Manager  was brought in, which is much more powerful, and now the windows  created from it are used in Console, instead of those created in Window  Designer.


    Window Designer was left in so that windows can be created for  Mobile Portal.  Further to  that, Window Designer does have one extra feature, which is that windows  created in it can be migrated to Window Manager.  This was mainly  intended for customers who were upgrading, so they didn't have to  recreate all their windows, but it can also be used if a window has been  accidentally created in Window Designer.

    On the whole, when it comes to creating and editing windows, Window Manager is the tool to use.
