The problem here seems to be that Gorm only adds OIDs for the objects referenced in connections. Your active window doesn't seem to be involved in any connection, so it is missing from that list and the addObject: call will fail due to the nil parameter.

The method [NSIBObjectData initWithDocument:] in the file GormNibWrapperBuilder.m should at least add the window and the menu from the GormDocument to the OIDs when they aren't present there already.

Using Gorm 1.2.12

I tried to convert a gorm project (one window only) into a .nib directory using "save as" in the menu and selection "Cocoa nib" as file type. It turns out that for a given .gorm file, everything works smoothly after clicking ok, but the .nib file is not created.

I used gdb to track down the reason of such unexpected behavior, and it seems it is coming from the implementation of the method - - (NSArray *) [GormNibWrapperBuilder openItems], implemented in file ./Plugins/Nib/GormNibWrapperBuilder.m:300.

There is a loop using the enumerate:
while((obj = [en nextObject]) != nil)
if([obj isVisible])
NSNumber *windowOid = NSMapGet(oids, obj);
[openItems addObject: windowOid];

The problem is that NSMapGet returns a nil, causing an exception that is silently catched somewhere when adding the nil pointer to the openItems array. I did not figure out why NSMapGet returned null, but here is what I have with a breakpoint just after the NSMapGet:

Breakpoint 1, -[GormNibWrapperBuilder openItems] (self=0x9bdb10,
_cmd=0x7fffee7c4500) at GormNibWrapperBuilder.m:315
315 [openItems addObject: windowOid];
(gdb) p windowOid
$2 = (struct NSNumber *) 0x0
(gdb) po [obj class]
(gdb) p [obj isVisible]
$4 = 1 '\001'
(gdb) po oids
<NSConcreteMapTable: 0x8e31a0>

Commenting the line that adds windowOid to openItems
solves the problem, but some functionality is lost
by doing so.

I attached the .gorm file that causes such behavior.
