One thing I don’t like about the default Xcode layout is that all the views – code, debug, console, find, etc open in new windows by default.
If you’d rather not manage a bunch of Xcode windows all the time, Xcode has a “hidden” All-One-One view which shows all your views in a single window and ads a page toggle which conveniently switched between code and debugging toolbars. You can access under Preferences – General – Layout. This took me a long time to figure out because the Layout dropdown is disabled when a project is open. Maybe it’s my Visual Studio background, but I like the integrated view much better.
