No Console output in Xcode 11 and iOS 13? Here's the solution

For XCode 11 users, not getting any output in their console and believe this is an XCode bug, I got you! Assuming that you have the console active (view > debug area > activate console), you’ll have to right-click the live preview and select debug preview, as follows:

right-click to select debug preview

After that, you’ll start getting output in your console!

The output above is the following source code, that you can create as a view let’s say TestView.swift and copy/paste:

import SwiftUI

struct TestView: View {
    var body: some View {
        Button(action: { print("Hello world!") }) {
            Text("Click me!")

struct TestView_Previews: PreviewProvider {
    static var previews: some View {

It is that simple, hope this helped ;)
