To open the debugger for an application, open it or save any unsaved changes and click the red play button on the 'Application'/'Source' view.
When you want to debug an application be sure to remove code which checks
that __name__ == '__main__'.
Otherwise, while debugging, this test will fail and there will usually not be much to debug :)
