Actually it is not issue or bug. It is one features provided by Apple Inc. in new Xcode 8.0 version by default. It shows that how actually controls shows on your screen, so it try to show us grid with blue lines when we put any control on storyboard.

Also you can hide those blue lines by :blush:

Open app in Xcode --> Select Storyboard --> Editor --> Canvas --> Show Bounds Rectangles

Thanks for trying to help, but it actually doesn’t show any content at all, I Did what you said because someone else told me the same answer, and it didn’t work… the only thing that work, was restarting my mac.
