The Xcode workspace is made up of the windows you use regularly to develop products using the Xcode application. Such windows include the project window, text editor windows, the Documentation window, and others. Xcode lets you arrange the components of the project window and specify what documentation the Documentation window shows. When it comes to editing text files, especially source-code files, the Xcode text editor provides many features that facilitate editing code and accessing API reference directly from the editor quickly.

This document presents all the components that make up the Xcode workspace. If you’re new to Xcode, you should read this document to familiarize yourself with these components and to learn how to arrange them to your liking. What’s New in Xcode describes features introduced in the latest release of Xcode.
