XCode keeps glitching out on me and listing errors in files that have long since been fixed or deleted.

How can I clear all the errors and get it to start from fresh?

1 Answer 1


XCode 10.3. On the menu: Product -> Clean Build Folder

    lol. Thank you. I'm no longer working on the project, so if anyone else can confirm this works, let me know and I'll mark the answer as accepted.

    Yeah, it totally works. Thanks for saving my sanity from an annoying stuck build error.

    Just cleaning didn't help me. Cleaning and restarting XCode did.

  • I also had to turn off "Show live issues" -- Xcode -> Preferences -> General -> Show live issues

    So this still issue still occurs on the latest Xcode v14 beta 3. This solution and a subsequent rebuild did the trick for me. Thanks
