That is how I have found the situation. I use WingIDE for editing and 
debugging, but it doesn't include any graphic designer for wx. I wish 
something that did worked, or that I could get it to work. Several 
half-there solutions; but everything I've tried either isn't ready for 
OS X or isn't ready for prime time.
