This is a duplicate of radar #37841641

IBDesignables don't work at all in a project that has a Watch app because the automatic step that build the project for interfacebuilder is broken in this case.

I really hope a fix can be included for this in Xcode 10 as this has been broken since 7.2.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new "iOS App with WatchKit App" project in Xcode
2. Add a custom view and make it designable
3. Use the custom view in a storyboard

Expected Results:
Xcode builds the project and displays the designable in interface builder

Actual Results:
Xcode fails to build the project with the following message:
target specifies product type 'com.apple.product-type.watchkit2-extension', but there's no such product type for the 'iphonesimulator' platform




Fixed in Xcode 10

It's been fixed since Beta 5. :-)
