Where are the Wing Personal tutorial files

Just installed Wing Personal.Following the tutorial: First step, copy the tutorial files to another location.

Well, there is no application folder for Wing on my Mac. Just an application file. I've searched and cannot find anything else "Wing" related.

I have the latest version of Wing Personal (I'm on a Mac, Sierra 10.12.6).

Where are the tutorial files?

Right click the application in Finder and select Show Package Contents. A new Finder window will open with a Contents folder.  Navigate through this folder to Resources where you will find the tutorial folder.Mac "applications" are in reality a bundle of files and directories hiding behind an icon.  They cannot be accessed through the normal browse dialog, hence the need to make a copy.  Alternatively you could make an alias or link accessible from the main folder structure.

Also note that the Tutorial from the Help menu has a Copy Tutorial Now link on the second page in the "Copy the Tutorial Directory" step which you can use without manually finding it.  It prompts for the target directory to copy the tutorial to.

Oh! Well I guess it was the wording on that. I thought I still had to find the tutorial files in order to copy them. I don't think I've ever looked inside an application icon for the package either - just never had to do that on a Mac. But now I know. Thanks for the help.
