New Resource dialog doesn’t have Navigation resource type for navigation graph even after adding Navigation Architecture Component dependencies
def nav_version = '1.0.0-alpha01' implementation "android.arch.navigation:navigation-fragment:$nav_version" implementation "android.arch.navigation:navigation-ui:$nav_version"
Make sure that you checked the box Settings -> Experimental -> Enable Navigation Editor.
The Navigation Editor is an experimental feature, so you must first
enable it by opening the IDE Settings/Preferences dialog, selecting
Experimental in the left pane, and checking the box next to Enable
Help -> What’s New in Android (Android Studio 3.2 Beta 1)
after that , restart Android Studio
It works in Android Studio 3.2 which is in Canary at the time of writing.
Android Studio 3.2 features tools for Android Jetpack including a
visual Navigation Editor and new code refactoring tools.
I don’t know why it’s not showing up for me either but there is a workaround.
Right click on
res –> select
Android Resource Directory –> select
Resource type as
navigation click ok –> select the newly created
navigation directory –> right click
File and put in the name
nav_graph.xml –> once the file opens paste this code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <navigation xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"> </navigation>
I was using Android Studio 3.2.1 but it would not load the navigation editor. Complained about not being able to install the navigation fragment dependency. Only after I invalidated Android Studio’s cache and restarted did it work.
I have faced same issue when I create new resource file as Navigation Type .
The navigation editor tool is only available in Android Studio 3.2 Canary.
I tried to enable Navigation editor manually:
File → Settings → Experimental → Enable Navigation Editor
Still the Navigation option does not appear in the selection menu.
It will appear after I restarted android studio.
