Xcode 7.2 Playground not Displaying Output

I just installed Xcode 7.2 from the mac app store and started a new playground. For whatever reason, Xcode isn't displaying any output, even before I change any code. I have no idea what could be causing this... I've done some Googling and the results never got to a definitive answer that worked. Any Ideas?

Hey Nick!

Do you have any errors? The compiler is not able to display any output either if you have errors or your code is not complete. Could you share your code here to describe the situation more specifically?

Just in case, you can share your code using backticks. It's perfectly described in "Markdown Cheatsheet" below the text area: "Wrap your code with 3 backticks (```) on the line before and after. If you specify the language after the first set of backticks, that'll help us with syntax highlighting."

var thisWouldPerfectlyWorkInXcodePlaygroundCompiler = "Yo Nick :)"

And that's what I've exactly typed (but without quote marks):


var thisWouldPerfectlyWorkInXcodePlaygroundCompiler = "Yo Nick :)"
