    In my Interface Builder, the panels at the top of the MainMenu.nib file don't show up (Instances, Classes, Images, Sounds, Nib) I'm running Leopard and I installed XCode from the leopard install CD.

    Here's a screenshot of what my window looks like:

    Thanks in advance.

    That is because they no longer exist in IB 3 :)

    What are you trying to do?

    That tutorial need to be updated to Xcode 3.
    You're stuck at the point where you are trying to create the controller, right?
    In IB 3 you:
    * Drag an "Object" from the library to MainMenu.nib window. (You can use the quick search field to find it quickly.)
    * Select the new Object and open the Inspector, if it isn't already.
    * There is a class drop down box that, I think, will have NSObject in it. You'll change that to the name of your controller. (I did this tutorial once, it's called something like AppController or NotepadController, right?).
    * When you hit enter, it should load up the actions and outlets.

    If you get stuck again, maybe you should try apple's Xcode 3 objective-C tutorial until this one gets updated.
