Xcode Won't Build

Everything has been working OK to this point, until I added more data to my arrays (for a project combining the simple iPhone app and the categorical project with multiple view controllers). The project was building and running fine, until I added new data to the arrays (not sure if it's related), and now the status bar is forever "indexing" and any attempt to build gets hung up in step 2 or 3. I opened other projects like the simple iPhone app and these are now hung up in the build process as well. Any advice?

So after shortening the arrays, it stopped the build hang up, but indexing is still going on for a long time. WTH though...Is there a rule about how many literals can be in an array? How much is too much? Seems very limiting.

I am having the same problem. I have even tried to go back to a previous version of Xcode (6.1) to see if it was a bug in an update. Nope. Still indexing. I am throwing a lot in my arrays, but I feel as if Xcode should handle it.

Eager to see if you have had any luck fixing the problem, Brian.

Initially, reducing the array size cleared up the build issue...I ended up seeing an update to Xcode that resolves this type of issue and after the update it's working, and much faster.
