In xcode 6, when I add table view controller, the arrow didn't appear. How can I manually initiate the scene?

The table view controller was not initiated so it won't show up when I run the app. Is there any way to initiate a scene manually or did I do something wrong here?

select the view controller in your storyboard file. open the utilities pane. in the attributes inspector there should be a check box that says is initial view controller. check the box and it will make the view controller the initial scene and put the little arrow out beside it

I still have issue with this. I was able to set it as "initial view controller" and set my new storyboard as main interface - when i still run the app - i don't see any tableview (with empty cells in it). I am on xcode 7.

Update: (I resolved it. See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/26681282/ios-8-uitableviewcontroller-separator-scrolling-render. Trick was to use "Renders with edge antialiasing" in plist. But would love to understand this better though!
