Doc: Describe running apps from the Application Output pane

This saves time when developing Qt Quick applications, because
the QML files are interpreted at runtime. Therefore the
app does not need to be recompiled if only QML files changed.

Update the screenshot to make the Run button more visible.

The \uicontrol {Application Output} pane displays the status of the
application while it is running. You can select the \uicontrol Run button
in the pane to re-run applications without building them first. This is
useful when developing Qt Quick applications, because the QML files are
interpreted at runtime. Therefore, the application does not need to be
built again if you edited only QML files. This saves time especially if
the application contains large image files that would need to be bundled
into the resource file before running the application.
