I added a new UITextView to my app by dragging it onto my current view which was a scrollView thinking I was adding a text field. I realized that this is not what I wanted to do so I went back through Interface builder and deleted the UITextView. The program still compiles cleanly but when I go to run it in the simulator it crashes. Im still rather new at this so I am not sure where to start looking, but I am guessing that there is something left over that is pointing to the deleted view and thus causing the crash. Where should I start looking so I can remove any bad references to the deleted view? Thanks Added : I checked the debugger and saw the message : NSInternalInconsistencyException , reason: '[UIViewController _loadViewFromNibNamed:bundle:] loaded the "scrollTestViewController" nib but the view outlet was not set."
