Description Amy Burns 2014-04-14 14:22:25 UTC
Using XS 4.3.4 (Latest Alpha, updated yesterday), returned to working on a project that had used the Designer and IB to add controls. All outlets had been referenced in code - tested application yesterday all was running as expected.

When Quitting (cmd + Q) Xamarin Studio - it threw this https://gist.github.com/asb3993/b734bce03193cbb87f69, and then moved MainStoryboard.Storyboard outside of the project (http://screencast.com/t/ALdjE2U7p / http://screencast.com/t/1DET7Xh1Ayke). As you can see this file has been set as an Interface Builder file and cannot be opened in Xamarin Studio.

Probably an xcode sync issue. Jeff, is xcode sync still being enabled by default for everything, even if that file is being opened in the ios designer by default?
Comment 2 Jeffrey Stedfast 2014-04-21 15:50:24 UTC
Why is the storyboard being opened in Xcode if it's also being opened in the designer? I'm so confused!
Comment 3 Alan McGovern 2014-04-21 15:54:13 UTC
I don't know either. I'm just wondering if XcodeProjectTracker is being enabled for projects even if they're defaulting to the built in editor and xcode is never used.

I suppose it should still be used *if* the user ever right clicks and explicitly chooses 'open in xcode'.
Comment 4 Amy Burns 2014-04-22 22:13:56 UTC
In my case I was writing a doc using both interchangeably. I can't really imagine a scenario where this would be used, but regardless, this doc  (http://docs.xamarin.com/guides/ios/user_interface/designer/introduction/#Revert_Back_to_Xcode) talks about it, and there is an option for it in xamarin studio, therefore it should work.
Comment 5 Jeffrey Stedfast 2014-06-05 15:58:16 UTC
I added more null-checks in that area of the code, so maybe this is fixed?
