I was playing with Xcode 6 and messed up all the views in storyboard, so I’ve decided to delete all the view and drag in new view controller, and I wasn’t able to run the app because it can’t find the initial view. Previously I’ve learned that I can set which view to be initial view by dragging the starting point arrow, but since I dont’ have anything on my storyboard, that arrow was gone, even after I dragged in the new view controller

To get the starting point arrow back:

xcode 6.1 set initial view

  1. Click the view controller on storyboard.
  2. On the Attributes Inspector (on the right pane), under View Controller section, check the Is Initial View Controller box right under the Title box.

That’s it, two steps.

Note to myself: Next time look properly.
