I'm completely new to the world of Xcode. Since my MacBook is too old for installing the newest Xcode version, I'm trying to learn with Xcode 3.2.6.

Now I go through a book for learning Objective C with Xcode and I have problems to find several buttons. I already needed to let the green "Run"-button view manually via "customize toolbar", but the buttons to have access to the log navigator still do not appear and I don't know how to do it.

That's how my Xcode looks like right now:

That's what I'm searching:

How can I view those buttons? Is there another way to access to the log navigator?


Xcode 4 has been a major revision of the software that also made e.g. Interface Builder (a separate program with Xcode 3) or Property List Editor a part of Xcode. The part labeled Editor Area with interface elements is a entirely separate program in Xcode 3.

These buttons just don't exist in Xcode 3. Note that the Run button just looks like the newer one, the one labeled Build and Run (in the middle) does essentially the same thing.

You should either get a machine and OS capable of running Xcode 4, or get older tutorials and documentation specifically for Xcode 3.


You can view the programs you're writing by going to the folder where you saved the program, and doubleclicking the file in the build / Debug folder.
