The Hottest of All Xcode Tips

It’s come to my attention that not everyone knows this. But everyone needs to know this.

In Xcode’s Organizer, in the Crashes section, you can right-click or ctrl-click on any row and choose Show in Finder. This will reveal a .crashpoint file — do a Show Package Contents and then dig in further. You will find .crash files with the full crash logs, which provide a lot more info than what you see in Organizer.

(Bonus tip: I just drag the .crashpoint package onto BBEdit, which shows the contents in its sidebar, where I can click on different .crash files. I assume other text editors have a similar feature.)
