Playgrounds in Xcode 12: Live view not working

Forums > macOS


As I'm working through Hacking with macOS, doing the Swift tutorials, Playrounds doesn't seem to automatically update.

If I have code like this

import UIKit

var name: String
name = "Tim McGraw"
"Your name is \(name)"

and click the rectangle at the bottom, it'll take a sec & show the values in live view. However, if I change the name, it doesn't update.



if you long press the rectangle/arrow at the bottom you can checkmark "Automatically Run". This allows Xcode to automaticaly update when a change is done in your code.

Hope this helps!
