    XCode Workspace Guide has the following
    Opening Project Files

    If you already have a project window open, you can open a file by
    selecting it in the Groups & Files list in that window. If you have
    the text editor pane open inside the project window, clicking the
    filename opens the file in the editor. Otherwise, double-clicking
    the file in the Groups & Files list opens the file in a separate
    editor window.

    I found this all to be great a true until recently. I can
    no longer simply select a file , say a *.m file , and have it
    appear in the editor pane inside the project window. I am
    forced to double click and have it open in a new window
    or right click Open As -> Source Code File .

    Xcode Preferences has
    FileTypes: XML - Default Source File

    selection of this type file under Group & Files also fails to open in

    I have tried other projects, all of which worked in XCode in the
    past. Here too , selection fails to load file.

    Can you please advise this newbie how to fix this?
    Thanks, Mark
