No, Mac OS X automatically handles memory intelligently at a system level. It's not like Mac OS 9 where you have to manage memory allocations per application manually. Mac OS X applications will automatically allocate as much as they need to do their job. There are exceptions, of course (applications that impose a user-configuration memory limit on themselves), but I don't think Interface Builder is one of them.

Now, if this is on the nib you were talking about earlier with hundreds and hundreds of buttons in it, you may want to rethink your design to do that in a different way. The general expectation is that a nib will have a few dozen buttons or so at maximum, so I wouldn't be surprised if using hundreds or thousands would cause some performance problems. It's not the way the system is designed to be used.

Pretty much everything you do in a nib can also be done programmatically. If you have a hypercard-type app, you can create buttons in code and put them wherever you want, without doing anything in the nib.
