An Android project that I am working on requires additions to the AndroidManifest.xml file. The code runs ok but with every compile a new AndroidManifest.xml file is created and my additions are saved in a copy of the altered Manifest with a new extension (see below) which means that my additions are not being used. Is there any way to add my additions programmatically so that Processing puts them in the Manifest file or some way of preventing it from creating a new Manifest file with each compile?

Just discovered a workaround which is to File/Export Android Project then import that into Android Studio and edit Manifest File. After running on Android device close app and restart Android device. Changes should then take effect. Seems like a lot of work. Would rather see Processing honor an existing edited Manifest file and not create a new one every time.
