Hi Tribee,


Xcode 5 doesn't provide an interface to add Doc Sets.


It's supposed to be possible to copy a Doc Set to ~/Library/Developer/Shared/Documentation/DocSets/ and Xcode will find it, but I've never tried it, and the STV Doc Set is distributed via a feed so I'm not sure how you'd get .docset file directly. I tried the URL in Safari and it tried to open in NetNewsWire.


I did find this that says it can install feeds for Xcode, but I've never tried it.


I find the new documentation viewer in Xcode 5 not as good as the Xcode 4 one, you can't browse or see the top index page are my main issues. I've switched to using for documentation, with it's Xcode plugin. Dash talks about sharing a feeds Doc Set so might work with the STV Doc Set feed. I've not tried it. I already had the STV Doc Set installed before the upgrade to Xcode 5 and Xcode just found it, and because Xcode had it installed Dash also just found it.

Hi Dave,


I tried and that is working well (install this free programm and add the feed to the STV documentation, http://www.sensiblec...leView-3.0.atom)


I have not yet tried Dash, but may take a look at that as well.


Suggestion for sensible Cocoa: update "Docset readme.rtf" with info about installing the abovementioned method for xcode 5.


Thank you very much for your clear explanation!
