Tagging XCode workspace files not working
« on: July 09, 2011, 08:46:17 pm »

I am evaluating slickedit for use on a Mac with an xcode project. I would really like to use it for its tagging and symbol references
so I can easily explore an existing project's source code.

However, that is the one feature I cannot get working!

When I add the xcode project file using the Project -> Open Other Workspace, it loads in the project fine.

But looking under Tools -> Tag Files... I see the Workspace Tag File, but not files are listed in it.

I try to rebuild the tag file, but still no change. However, when I turned off the background tagging option, I did see an error message
that gave me a clue as to what is going on.

The error message said it couldn't find the 88 files to tag, and the path for the files in the error message were wrong, they were looking inside the xcode project package!

So the path to the workspace tag file is


And the source files are in


But the tagging is looking in the following for my .h and .m files


I confirmed this by temporarily copying my source files into my xcodeproj package, and the tagging worked, using those copied files.

Seems like a bug to me, but I am new to SlickEdit, so am open to any insights anyone has.

This bug was found in the current version (16.0.0), and has been fixed in the forthcoming 16.0.1 release. We'll post on this forum when 16.0.1 is available.
