Xcode All-In-One View

One thing I don’t like about the default Xcode layout is that all the views – code, debug, console, find, etc open in new windows by default.

If you’d rather not manage a bunch of Xcode windows all the time,  Xcode has a “hidden” All-One-One view which shows all your views in a single window and ads a page toggle which conveniently switched between code and debugging toolbars.  You can access under Preferences – General – Layout.  This took me a long time to figure out because the Layout dropdown is disabled when a project is open.  Maybe it’s my Visual Studio background, but I like the integrated view much better.

  1. perfect! exactly what I needed! People say this is a “hidden” feature but it’s not all that hidden. Right there smack on the general tab.
