Couldn't open xib file after git pull, invalid element name


Glad you corrected the issue. I recently ran into the same issue. It a merge conflict and that is why Xcode is throwing that error. Within the .xib file you will see something like:

<<<<<<< HEAD// code=======// code>>>>>>> apps

You can do what you did above, or manually correct the merge conflict issues by opening the .xib file in a text editor. After correcting it the file should open fine in Xcode.


All you have to do is find the <<<<<<< HEAD lines and delete them. Compiled on my first try. For some reason they are inserted into the .xib file when you have a merge conflict.


I think @Tom Harrington is right, xib file was corrupted, So

  1. I cancelled the last pull.
  2. Made the changes by my self in XIB.
  3. Take a copy from that XIB.
  4. git pull
  5. Delete the XIB in Xcode ( which was corrupted ).
  6. Added the external copy from modified XIB file.

Then every thing works great.Thanks guys :)
