Video showing the Name sync problem (watch the 'Name' property field.
When I open a .xib for the first time the 'Name' property of a component in the designer is not shown although I know it's there.
Steps to reproduce:
- Create a new xib and add a UITableView to it.
- Give the UITableView a name in the 'Name' field of the properties.
- Close the .xib
- Open the .xib in 'Code view' and check whether the name is there and mapped correctly.
- Open the .xib in the Designer
- Click on the UITableView - no Name is displayed in the 'Name' field of the properties.
- Click outside the View
- Click on the UITableView - the Name is now displayed correctly
This behavior can be observed all through the Designer, not just this example.

This looks like the value isn't set when the property panel initializes for the first time, but is set for subsequent attempts.
