Yes, I copied the whole thing over (in Windows, the "MainMenu.nib" file
is actually shown as a folder with two files, "designable.nib" and
"keyedobjects.nib" in it). This arrangement seems to work with my app on
Windows - that is, I see the main window and the correct content and
everything (just the menus don't seem to work for some reason), I just
would like to be able to edit the NIB files in Gorm instead of having to
go back to IB all the time.
