    It's hard to guess how other can have stated this problem so I couldn't
    find any previous question about it nether here on macrumors or trough

    My question is very simple:
    how can I see a list of every object I've "dropped" into a window
    in the interface builder.
    I use a lot of objects that don't use borders or are transparent etc.
    Atm it hasn't been a problem because I have not added many
    object's to my window, but I definitely will have to.

    Select the last item in the Window menu. In Interface Builder version 3, you should see everything that is in the nib. If it is in icon view, switch it to list or column view (you can only do this from the 3-part widget in the toolbar, there is no View menu). Both list and column view can show you hierarchies of things like windows and menus and so forth.

    I cannot remember exactly what Interface Builder was like before version 3, but I am pretty sure you can get this kind of view.

    Thank you, I had it in icon view. :)
    In list view I got the complete list of hierarchies and everything,
    exactly what I was looking for!

    Kudos! :)
