    I've been messing around with this for days, so it's time to ask.
    Hillegas's first challenge is this?

    What puzzles me is the admonition that the window is to be of a certain type. I have googled/searched lists/ looked at the Apple Dev notes and I am sure it is there, but I am mystified **why** the challenge specifically mentions one window, and that it is **not** to be a document window. As far as I can tell, the other window is a simple application window, and this window already resides in the IB, but if someone can perhaps throw some light on this, or send a reference, I will be very appreciative.

    I don't think it's anything so mysterious, I believe he's just trying to tell you to create the project type as Cocoa Application instead of Cocoa Document-Based Application. Then your application will have one window associated with it (by default anyway), instead of one per open document.

    I believe you're looking for this one:


    But, as far as I'm concerned.. there's no reason to be.
