Have your Xcode Extensions ever just… disappeared on you (usually after a crash)?
They’ll be completely missing from the
Editor menu item in Xcode itself, but also missing from the Extensions area of System Preferences.
Well you’re in luck, I have a simple solution for you.
- Quit Xcode Completely
- Go to
/Applications(where Xcode.app is installed)
- RENAME Xcode to something (I usually just add a space before “.app”) and hit Enter
- Revert Xcode to it’s original name.
- There is no step 5.
From XcodeKit and Xcode Source Editor Extensions on NSHipster:
That’s all we’re doing when we rename Xcode, we’re simply re-registering it with Launch Services.
