Xcode 4.2 Doesn’t Show Exception Stack Trace in Console

When using Xcode 4.2 for iOS development there’s an annoying bug where any exceptions crash to the main.m file instead of highlighting the line. Luckily you can set a custom breakpoint to restore the old and correct behaviour:

  1. Open the Breakpoint navigator (CMD + 6)
  2. Click the + button in the bottom left
  3. Select Add Exception Breakpoint 
  4. Click Done

Xcode 4: Unable to Select Project / Template Type

iOS File Template Selector

iOS File Template Selector - unable to click an item

When opening a new iOS or template type in Xcode 4 (4.0.2) I was unable to select any of the project or file templates, turn it out this occurred when tapping (not ‘clicking’) on the items.

Using a firm clicking click or the arrow keys seems to work around this. Tapping just seems to deselect anything currently selected.

What a strange bug!
