This barely qualifies as a tip worthy of publishing, however, it’s something I use regularly so I figured it’s worthwhile passing on.
I’ve been working with some monster projects as it relates to content. What that translates to is really long lists of files inside of Finder. Since I bounce between a handful of projects over the course of the week, more often than not I opt to open a project from by browsing the files within Finder and opening the file with the extension .xcodeproj. With folders having many files, I quickly tired of scrolling down the file list looking for the xcode project file.
To bubble the project file to the top, I simply rename the project file and place an underscore at the front of the project name. For example, SomeProject.xcodeproj becomes _SomeProject.xcodeproj. This has no effect on the project (from Xcode’s perspective), however you may need to update your source code control system with the new (renamed) file.
Trivial as it is, a hand tip none-the-less.
