Xcode Won't Connect IBOutlet for Cell Items in File Other Than That Automatically Chosen

I'm at approximately 1:25 in the attached video, and when I try to Control-Drag any items in the prototype cell in the view that shows all the entries to the private @interface in THEntryCell.m, the blue line from the item in the interface to my mouse pointer appears, but it won't allow me to connect it to a file other than the one automatically chosen by Xcode (THEntryListViewController.h). I'm running Xcode 5.1.1 on OS X 10.10 Yosemite Public Beta 2. Any ideas, or ways to manually connect the necessary IBOutlets?

I too noticed this but after changing what the assistant editor shows, I put it back to the THEntryCell.m file and it starting working. I noticed that the THEntryCell.m started showing up int he Automatic panel now also. I suggest that if you see this you should try a clean and restarting Xcode. If that doesn't work, then try stopping Xcode and removing the DerivedData folder.
