XCODE keeps crashing. Deals with auto layout


I clicked to turn off auto layout. And now I click the check box to turn it on, and xcode immediately crashes..Every time. I'm pretty sure that all tableviews have a datasource. I can't work on the project! Please help.

I just faced this problem and removing all of the <em>File Owner's</em> <strong>Outlets</strong> and <strong>Referencing Outlets</strong> did the trick.

<strong>Note:</strong> Firstly, as I couldn't turn off autoLayout graphically as Xcode crashed just by trying to view the <em>.xib</em>, I managed to do it following <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/a/19520135/1200733" rel="nofollow">AbuYusuph's suggestion.</a>


I was able to fix this issue by deleting the <strong>symlinks</strong> I had from the /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/ to the /Users/xxx/Library/Developer/Xcode/iOS DeviceSupport. I hope this will help.


I just remade an entire viewController and it works now. Not really answering the question. I am thinking it's just a glitch
