Display full string’s content while debugging in Xcode 4

I spent several time playing with Xcode 4 trying to figure out how to display the full content of a couple of strings during a debugging session. It seems that text displayed in the “variables view” panel are limited to 100 characters, if a string is longer than that size it will be truncated to the first 97 characters and will be added suspension points (…).
To inspect the full content of the string, we have to right click on the desired variable and choose “print description“, at this point xcode will print it to the console (fundamentally is like if we had written an NSLog() in our code at runtime)
