    Hi guys.

    I thought I remembered seeing a thread where a poster told someone how to make terminal launch automatically once you clicked "Build and go" and I never bothered to write it down because I figured I could find it somewhere in the preferences....


    ....well I can't. Google and MRoogle weren't much help either. Does anyone know how to do this?

    Also what on earth does "Touch" and "Untouch" mean? I haven't found this in the documentation or help that comes with XCode for whatever reason. It just points me to the menu option.

    Xcode Menu > Debugging tab > On Start - select "Show Console"

    Touch means update the file access and modification time so that Xcode will rebuild it.

    Untouch is the reverse.

    Thank you! That worked perfect. I dont know how I missed it before :D Too bad it doesn't keep my transparent black background and light blue text of my normal terminal window but I'll live :D

    I dont plan on doing console much longer anyway, its only to learn the basics.
