Description Paul Johnson 2015-09-14 08:58:46 UTC
Due to a couple of limitations in the designer (such as not being able to copy and paste from an existing xib into a VC on the designer), I have to edit my storyboard in xcode.

When I do this, XS throws up an error that it can't sync and an exception has been raised. The altered storyboards have saved fine (reload into xcode and the changes show), but the designer shows the last design it had for that VC

Using XS 5.10 (build 704)
Xam.iOS (business)
OS X 10.10
Xcode 6.4 (6E35b)

Can you screencast the problem and also attach the log files? This sounds like an Xcode integration issue, not an iOS designer issue.
Comment 2 Paul Johnson 2015-09-15 04:20:35 UTC
Yep though it may not be until tomorrow when I'm back home (work is touchy on installing video cap software - even the likes of jing)
Comment 3 Alan McGovern 2015-09-15 04:23:11 UTC
No problem. Without the error messages or a way to reproduce the problem it's hard to figure out what's going wrong. Including the log files from the XS Log Directory would probably help too. They should have the details of exactly what went wrong and why.

Any update on this? Without further information we won't be able to figure out the issue.

Without further information it's not possible for us to tell what is going on. I'll closing this until we get more info on the problem.
