    I used to use Xcode 2.0, but recently upgraded to Xcode 2.2. Before when i was writing a program (in Java 5), if there was an error in my code a red "x" would show up in the left margin (during compiling) on the line in which there was an error. It no longer does that anymore. All it does it is state how many errors are in the code at the bottom of the screen, but it doesnt identify which lines the errors are on. Can someone tell me how to fix this?

    Thank you.

    I can't tell you how to fix it, but I can report that it works as expectred for me (with Obj-C source).

    Why not just use an IDE designed for java development, such as Eclipse?

    That reminds me... When Xcode shows a red 'x' or the yellow warning symbol in the margin of the source code editing window, if I roll over the symbol, it will give me a tooltip of the full error text. But what happens is, a second after I roll over it for the first time, the tooltip disappears. If I then move the mouse off the symbol and back over it, the tooltip will come back and stay this time until I move the mouse off again. So I find myself doing this little "mouse dance" a lot and it can be quite frustrating (especially with a trackpad at 1280x854). Does anyone else have this Xcode bug?
