Partial use of Designer?
I'm working on a project with Sencha touch 2 and am liking the idea of using Sencha Designer. I have the trial and want to try it out, but I am concerned that I won't be able to just jump into the files later. I've noticed that there is no Index.hml file created.
Is it possible to start a project in Sencha Designer but then leave it, and manually write the rest if I do not want to continue using the designer? At the same time is it possible to jump back in to Designer later on?
Thanks in advance,

I use SD for ExtJS and write my own index.html so I can load my own code and show "loading" and so.
Of course you can stop using SD at any time and do manually any changes to the generated code but you cant back because SD uses metadata files to store components and hasn't the ability of parse hand crafted code.
Even with some limitations I'm comfortable with SD, In my current project I do about 95% of the work inside SD, the other 5% is library and custom code.
