When looking at the storyboard - are you all the way zoomed in? The interface builder can be really annoying that way. If that's not the problem, If your goal is just to create a an IBOutlet. Open up the assistant editor, click on the imageView, ctrl-drag over to the .m or .h file and let go. Then the dialog box should appear.
