    It sure would be nice to use Spotlight to search the development documentation, but it completely ignores that folder on my machine. I've found how to exclude folders from indexing, but not how to add folders.

    Any ideas?

    Spotlight seems to search the Developer folder on my machine and it's not something I've had to force it to do.

    This link has some info on forcing Spotlight to index folders.

    Hah, I had the opposite problem. I wanted it to stop returning results from the developer folders
