Re: Xcode 9 impressions

I’m running Xcode 9, but on Sierra. The XIB option is there when I create a new View Controller.

Have they actually removed the xib options from the New File dialog?

If not, you can just delete the storyboard and create some xib files.

So far Xcode 9 has one major flaw that must be corrected - for mac OS apps, it appears that Apple has removed the ability to create projects with xibs, instead only allowing Storyboards.
Yikes. I haven’t done much UI-level development in recent years, and I never really figured out storyboards so I still use xibs. Guess it’s time to learn.

I guess you could work around this by copying an existing project and removing all the existing sources and resources, to use it as a template to start from.
