    There's a 3rd-party Pref Setter app that seems to work.

    Did you do it this way:

    Or did you actually move the app and the framework inside of the Xcode.app structure?

    I created a simple way to install the Property List Editor DevTool with or without Xcode installed.

    Watch this. It also has a download in case you don't wanna get the whole Xcode package. It's free and simple.

    I just came in to say that I followed the instructions and it worked like a charm.  I had installed XCode 3.2.6 some time ago, in order to gain back the Property List Editor tool (since it is such a pain waiting for XCode to open and then navigate through it just to look at a PList).  I believe I did this back when I found out they took it out from XCode 4.

     

    However, this meant that I had multiple copies of XCode, of which one was specifically for a single tool.  I followed the instructions as noted, except that instead of extracting the files from the downloaded package, I just used the ones from the older installation in the "/Developer-3.2.6" folder.

    • Copy the "Property List Editor.app" bundle into the "/Developer/Applications/Utilities" folder
    • Copy the "PlistEdit.framework" folder into the "/Developer/Library/PrivateFrameworks" folder
    • Throw the "/Developer-3.2.6" folder to the trash
    • Empty trash (otherwise, it will continue complaining that the app is in the trash instead of picking up the copied one).
    • And Bob's your uncle.

     

    I re-associated the plist file types with the "Property List Editor.app" in its new location, and everything works as I wanted.

     

    Note that I am not a developer (well, not any more), and I've only kept up with XCode for some of the tools that allow me to manage my system, including the "Property List Editor.app".

     

    A big "thank you" to all of you for the assistance!

     

         Cheers!
