I tried google'ing around and I could not find the shortcut that can send me to the "output window(if that's what it's called)" after telling my program to compile and run. Also, how would I switch back to my code editor from that output window?

I've done it before, but I forgot it.

Thank you

It is a little unclear what you really mean:

The Output pane is called the Console. It is displayed in the Debug area.

There are a few ways to get to it.

In the Toolbar Menu:

Use the Debug area toggle button.

enter image description here

From the Menu Bar : View Menu :-> Debug area :-> Show the Debug area menu to open the Debug area set as it was last displayed

enter image description here


enter image description here

Note the shortcut for this: cmd + shift + Y

Use View Menu :-> Debug area :-> Activate Console area to Show the Debug area with the Console showing.

enter image description here


enter image description here


Note the shortcut for this: cmd + shift + C

Or just show the Console area if the debug area is already showing.

You can also use the Debug area show hide toggle to show/hide either the Variable View or the Console area view

  • Whoa thanks for doing all that. Cmd+Shift+c was the command I was looking for. It switches me into the active console while the program is running and waiting for my input. Now just wondering, if I wanted to edit my code, but I'm in the active console area, do you how to switch back? Thank you!

Command+Shift+Y. It is a toggle shortcut which opens and closes output in Xcode.

  • Cmd+Shift+Y only opens or closes the Debug area.
