Two screenshots

In XS iOS Designer. Some constraints are always shown in the layout-section of the Properties Pad.
Some others are not. The only constraints I've always seen shown are those referencing SuperView or Width or Height. The others tend to be hit and miss whether they're shown.

We have checked and not observing this behavior. Added constraints are appearing in the layout-section of the Properties Pad.

Could you please provide us the test steps you followed. If possible please
attach a small complete project that demonstrates this behavior.

Also can you please add the logs from the following places?:
On XS IDE Log  Location: XS>Help> Open Log Directory> IDE.log file (with latest
iOS designer Log Location: XS> Help> Open Log Directory> iOSDesigner.log file

Environment Info:
XS 5.0.1(build 3)
Comment 2 Ryan 2014-08-27 05:37:13 UTC
I have just started working with the iOS designer and have found exactly the same thing. 

If I drag a constraint handle from a component to the view controller's edge, it gets added to the component's layout properties as expected. 

If I drag a handle from one component to another, it doesn't show in either component's layout panel. It is added to the document outline, however.

Also, if I create a width constraint between two components, it shows the orange dashes correctly. If however I drag a spacing constraint, the orange dashes show in completely the wrong place, near the edge of the view controller.

Jarina, can you look into this when you finish the rest of your high priority work. It looks like more outline panel issues.
Comment 5 PJ 2014-08-28 17:18:00 UTC
Changing to assigned as per comment 4.
Comment 6 Alan McGovern 2015-08-28 17:13:14 UTC
The outline panel should be fine in current builds
